Hello my friends,
tonight is our last night in beautiful Carmel by the Sea.
We have had a wonderful three days in our sweet cottage rental.
I read about it in the Victoria magazine. It has been everything I'd hoped it would be. We are just a block away from the beach and downtown shopping and eating is in walking distance.
We have walked up and down the steep streets numerous times. Each time we would walk a different street. The garden gates were such a delight to see. I must admit that I had a bit of
garden gate envy.
The lush ivy surrounding this one was simply gorgeous!
And how pretty are the flower pots gracing each side of these
This gorgeous white one with the roses is one of my favorites.
Some were a bit rustic.
I love how you see the flag when you peek through this
This gate was rustic, but the painted flowers on the home helped to dress it up.
The railing leading to this gate was totally covered with ivy.
Some had pretty curves,
and some were adorned with baskets of flowers.
Some were wooden pickets.
Others were made of iron.
Everywhere we walked I had garden gate envy. And each and every one of them left me longing for more.
Oh how I yearned to wander behind the garden gates!!
And now I'll leave you with a little bit of '7th heaven'.
I am sharing with Pam's from Everyday Living new garden party:
