The Bird Gates

I was on my way down to the garden the other day and I realized I have never posted pictures of my beautiful gates in Laguna. They were custom made for me by artist David Wolf many years ago. These gates have 17 different kinds of birds on them, all from our area and life size. It is hard to photograph them so that they show the beauty and workmanship that went into them, but take my word for it, they are lovely!

Dear Sheila, How lovely to have such very individual and personal gates. It is always a thrill to commission something from an artist that will become an heirloom in time.

The gate is absolutely b-e-a-utiful. I don't think I'd have a place for it, though. Our place is just too country. Not that country is bad, in my opinion. :(
