A Photo a Week Challenge: GATEWAYS

This week’s photo challenge from Nancy Merrill is Gateways. I love to see creative entryways to gardens or within gardens. Here a few favorites taken over the years.

Barnsley House, the garden of the late Rosemary Very in Gloucestershire, England, is one of the most beautiful I have visited. This photo of her “Laburnum Walk” is iconic, an inviting gateway into her garden.

Another invitation to investigate a garden is this arbor covered with weigela in bloom. I placed the pot to pull your eyes through this gateway in my former garden in Chapel Hill. I still miss it.

Weigela florida variagata

    The photo of YOUR garden is beautiful and inviting. I still miss your photos of that garden too! Your last challenge of injury was wonderful! I have a creepy sort of interest in spiders and what a capture–yours and the spider’s. Thanks you for your lovely photos over the years. Nancy

    I love your clematis archway and the pot drawing the eye to the area beyond the arch. 😃

    Beautiful. The weigela is amazing, and the arch frames the entrance perfectly!

    Your garden must have been a great source of pleasure (and work). The pot was ideally placed and the Weigela looked so inviting as well.
