I’m glad I’m not alone in being enthused by weird snippets and that I can share a few of them here as food for the imagination.
I think that this was a quirky garden gate, made from recycled wood, although at the time I thought it was a section of fence. It may or may not be to your taste, but it’s certainly a one-off.
It didn’t seem to be on sale, but was set slightly apart, leaning against a wooden pillar. So, a piece of garden art, perhaps? Or made as a sample of what could be done around a garden by someone with the time, materials and skill.
I tried to persuade my sweetheart to do something like this when he decided to rework his fence, but after a short consideration of feasibility, received the southern uh-uh of dissent it takes northerners some time to distinguish from their uh-huh of assent. At least we have hope for longer.
If this gate had a previous, functional life in a garden, I’d have loved the chance to explore its surroundings. What else would a person with a gate like this have chosen or invented?
Those of us who see faces in everyday objects will find some here; those who don’t might prefer this wooden alligator.
