Gate With Landscape



Our blogger friend, TexWisGirl, has recently posted so many fun and creative ranch gates from the great state of Texas.  That made me wonder if I had seen any around here. At the other end of the valley, lies the ranch that belonged to Jack Palance, and I believe I saw a high and mighty looking gate there many years ago. Then there is a place with huge horses, and statues of even bigger horses, and I'm sure they must have a cool gate, but I just can't remember. Other than that, just ordinary stuff. Looking around our place, I took this photo of one of our two gates. While I love the gate posts, I had to laugh because you can't even see the gate itself. Oh, yes, it is made of barbed wire, very simple, but it would keep some critters out if needed. And it sends a message that this is private property.

  8. Great photo, Inger! I love ranch gates (farm gates in Louisiana). They say so much about owners, especially the open gate with barbed wire...Thanks for sharing!

    Went to IKEA today and bought a lovely battery candle with a star atop. It's in the window now. We saw so many of the more artistic types in Gamla Stan, oh, but I wish we'd bought one!

  9. Now what you need on one of the gates is a Christmas wreath and you'd have a pretty postcard to send to friends.

  10. Gates: We are very pleased with our one. http://thefieldofgold.blogspot.com/2011/01/front-gateway.html?utm_source=BP_recent
    In New Zealand there is a variety of gate like yours, that is simply wire woven together. Some times they have a few timbers nailed on to help them keep straight. It is known as a "Taranaki gate' after a province here where they were common. Because the farmers there did not have much money. Now with dairying, Taranaki is a rich palce indeed.

  11. Hi Inger!! Gates and fences along with barns are among my favorite things to see when we're driving and to take pictures of. To me, they say something and tell a story.

  13. That gate says "come walk through me" to me, not keep out.

  14. Goodness you had an interesting neighbor. Fences do establish boundries but the open gate is welcoming.

  16. Dear Inger,
    Do you take all these photographs yourself? If so, you are a gifted photographer with a fine sense of design and proportion. I so like seeing where you live.

    Peace.
