Gardens, Doors, Fences, & Gates

Just returning home from the North Carolina coastal area where I went to visit my sister.  She had surgery recently and I went to help out for awhile.  Her gardens had been calling out for attention.  I spent 3 full days just weeding and trimming shrubs.  Somehow weeding can be so satisfying; however, my back and knees do not necessarily agree.  But I do love to see a clean and tidy garden.  As I worked my mind raced back and forth about my new property in South Carolina.  Most of my property is pasture and my cottage will require a different style of gardening that my last two homes.  One was French and one was Georgian and both had formal gardens.  On my buying trips to England and France I always take time to look at gardens, front door entrances, gates, and fences.   I thought I would share some pictures that I have taken. Hopefully others may find some inspiring ideas to use.  After all, it is time to start thinking about our fall gardens and designs.

This door was so beautiful!  Just will not work for my cottage....maybe I need a townhouse in town.   Below is a closer view of the trim

     And finally one more beautiful set of doors.  I love double doors and did do two large double front doors for my cottage.
