Child containment gates
(who are we kidding?)
Gates used rarely,
locked and bolted,
One of my favourite gates is the one near the bird bath (second collage)
we use it after the barley has been harvested
the enormous barley field becomes our playground
Harry uses his metal detector, hoping for treasure
while I walk the dog
play ball with him.
The holiday air lasts
Farmer T the younger comes along
with the plough.
Then the gate gets locked for another year.
I picked the barley field gate as my favorite as I scrolled by because the vegetation has closed in on it. It looked charmingly unkempt.ReplyDelete
Joanne, that is probably my favourite part of the gardens. I allow the cow parsley to invade and soften the edges; it used to drive George crazy - luckily, he has mellowed. :)ReplyDelete

Lovely well made wooden gates
