Garden Gates

If you’ve been reading my blog any length of time, you know how passionate I am about gardening. I love to tour gardens throughout the South, particularly in cities that are renowned for them, like Savannah and Charleston.

Even on a simple walk past private gardens, I always want to peek over the wall or gate to appreciate the beautiful flowers and plants, but often I can’t help getting distracted by the gorgeous designs on the gates themselves.

Garden gates build up the anticipation of the beauty that lies beyond them. They’re just a glimpse of the care that goes into tending to a garden.

Whether made of wrought iron or wood, the most gorgeous of gates welcome you into the loveliest of gardens to admire nature’s pure beauty.
