Update on the garden gate ...

Joel putting the gate together - Saturdayafternoon
Getting a preview of what the gate will look like.Quick..take the picture..this is heavy!
Late Saturday night, Joel calls me to come see the gate!
It's done! All it needs is a latch.
I love it!!
Here is is in the daylight. Even cuter!
This is looking into the front yard. I can picture a seasonal wreath hanging on that gate ..
..welcoming friends and family to enter in!

Jeannetta...I thought of you when Joel was putting it together. Knew you would love it. I will post some new planters I got from Dottie. I thought of you as I planted them. Have you noticed the bucket you gave me years ago? I plant it every year..this year, little yellow pansies.

ok,ok, when I get my next house (one that I can actually add onto) dad has to come live with me for oh...the first year :)

Susan said...

Well darling Sara, we can both come live with you and drive you crazy!!! He does do amazing work doesn't he? We bought hardward for the fence last Saturday and he is going to spray paint it black. I think that will look great as the fence weathers to a grey color. He bought hinges that will swing the gate closed automatically! That will be good for Mr. Darcy!

I didn't make myself clear Sara Jane...he is going to spray paint the hardware black. The fence will weather to a grey color.
