A garden gate with heart

 

There is something utterly romantic about a garden gate, either at the entrance beckoning us in, or within the garden itself, inviting us to discover hidden corners or maybe even a secret garden. I came across both of these wonderful gates on a visit to an island off the coast of Southern Ireland. I love the fact that both are elevated above the ordinary with the simplest of touches – the bright coral colour making the first one stand out like a jewel against the green and white of its surroundings, the second with its mini love heart which someone has taken the time to carve.
