Some gates are made to keep you out, and others to keep you in. Then there are those that were made to decorate with!
My junking friend Sandra has several of the old metal gates. These two separate her little patio from the side yard and shed. This old watering trough makes a great focal point with a Knock Out Rose planted in it.
Gay Crane, who ownsRingold Feed and Seed antique shop uses her gate to display her address.
My garden gate is a backdrop for my herb garden. When the tiger lilies are blooming it makes a good trellis.
The next time you are at the flea market, look around for a garden gate. Who knows where you might use it.
