A beautiful gate to a beautiful garden.
I like the other fence surrounding the wayward specimen

Carletta said...

The massive posts seem to overshadow the detail of the iron fencing and gatework.
I love the sculptural quality of waterever that planting is.
Lovely finds Carole!

Love the tree trying to break out...and I really think the first is nice, too.

I imagine that is a beautiful place to spend time, Carole! I do love the "wayward specimen" and it's protective fence.

Ever since joining Friday Fences, I have become obsessed with the varying designs of wrought iron fencing and gates. This one is beautiful.

Love that poor fallen-over tree!
