the Garden Gate


Don't you just love garden gates & arbours & anything secret garden related? This dates back to my childhood, this love of snuggeries. I let my kids make beds in their closets when they were really little because I would have LOvED to have been allowed this cozy alternative. OK I'm now thinking those two are actually completely different topics in any mind but mine. Oh well, gates, garden corners and arbours are going to be my theme for the summer I think. I know that while walking (1.5hrs) the other day I saw a sweet gate that I'd like to sketch next. I was walking with my best bud so could not stop at that time but I'll do it on another day, on another walk.

This is a fabulous sketch! Wonderful drawing and great color. And yes, I love gates and arbors, too. And snuggling in the closet would even be nice. LOL!!

Hi Sue. Actually, I think the gate topic and your kids making beds in their closet somehow go together just fine. And I love the beautiful clear color in this sketch.

A lovely sketch - we'd never get planning permission for something like that here.
