Edwardian Simplicity

Pecan Orchard needs a gate. A simple gate.Visiting an English country house & garden I fell in love with this gate.
Simple, but not.
Garden & Be Well, XO Tara
This gate starts a conversation, Pecan Orchard needs a taller/wider gate. The garden, above, typically English, a wildwood beyond a gate luring you away from the formal garden. Wondering, finally, if you'll find Sirens, Nyads, Dryads, Satyres.... The last 2 sentences summing up the best of Landscape Design !

An entrance to a magical garden? I'm so there!

Love that gate Tara!
I was just thinking this morning, this is the year the garden will become a gated community in my own backyard!
The beds need to be defined, and a casual but simple way of doing it!
Thanks for the inspiration.

Nice - to have more land, to pull that off. Nice gate! It would work with our different plant life forms here, too, with some massaging.

And I always enjoy the inspiring comments on your blog!

you kind of want to climb on and let it swing open! i think a gate should make you feel more like coming into a garden than staying out of it!
