A Photo a Week Challenge: Gates and Fences

This week’s challenge from Nancy Merrill Photography is “Gates and Fences.”

Gates and fences can be important features in a garden. I would like to share a gate and a fence in gardens in the Charlotte area that I found to be quite lovely.

This gate is a welcoming invitation to enter a peaceful inner garden.

In this garden, the owner added arched windows to the fence. They don’t allow a view through the fence to the garden next door. Rather, the windows are fitted with mirrors. The reflections give the sensation that the garden extends past the fence. It is one of the most creative fences I have seen.

  1. That is a great fence and gate, not to mention a beautiful garden.

    I love the mirrored fence. It really does create the illusion that there is much more beyond it. 😃

    The mirrors make a great addition to that fence. Love the entry gate and fence in the first photo.
