Pursue some path, however narrow and crooked, in which you can walk with love and reverence.
-Henry David Thoreau
I believe beyond a garden gate one such path exists. I think my love for a beautiful garden gate comes from my love of secret passages in a home. I love wonderful secrets. What wonderful secrets a garden gate holds while closed.
What a delight the anticipation when you approach a garden gate and the delight you experience when you open it.
Whether the tucked away secret is a garden with a walking path or a relaxing seating area for good friends the garden gate is a welcome entrance.
The interruption of a fence or brick wall with a garden gate is fun! And the style, shape, color, iron or wood adds your personality. Rock it out! Show that personality!
Just when I think I have found my dream "some day" garden gate I come across another beauty!
Imagine giving directions to your home..."and when you come to the prettiest garden gate you ever saw...".
