Gateways into Avening.
After a morning working on my hats and fashion accessories, I often enjoy a stroll around the village with my camera, as a relaxing artistic treat, weather permitting!! It has rained such a lot this summer, that I really appreciate a sunny day!
I have noticed many doorways and gateways into hidden gardens and courtyards. I find this so intriguing, it brings to mind "The secret Garden". I decided to take a few photos of favourite gateways. I'm sure those of you who are residents of Avening will recognise some of these gateways! I will probably be taking pictures of vegetable gardens next time, before the summer comes to an end. Thank you for reading, back soon!!
|I love the way pink roses creep over the top!|
|These exotic gates could lead to a courtyard garden!|
|Clematis Montana covers this archway and has pink blooms in spring!|
|Steep steps lead up to a metalwork gate with lamp!|
|Ornate ironwork make this gate eye catching!|
|Ooh here's my own back gate, with the archway of the church gates just in view!|
