Through the Garden Gate

I've always wanted a picket fence around my yard.  The homeowner's association rules in my neighborhood do not permit fences.   Such a pity -  I think they are quite charming.

I'm with you -- I think there is something romantic by a white picket fence. Lovely shot.

What a sweet fence.

I'm a fence addict. I love the one you found. We can't do fences in our neighborhood either.

I am in the same boat as you...sigh. NO fences...the charm has been taken out of alot of neighborhoods where I live.

Well-kept picket fences are so charming...and I do love this wonderful vintage gate!

Brandi said...

I love that fence! We need to replace one, I just wish it wasn't so expensive!

Miranda said...

Love open gate shots I always want to see what is beyond... Gorgeous..

I know what you mean, they are very attractive. Could you not put one somewhere in your back garden, then the Homeowners Assn won't spot it! lol

Oh yes, picket fences are absolutely charming! Too bad you're not allowed to have one. And I love that photo.

It is a charming photo.

I love that one! I'm a picket-fan, too, and I find them so charming. I wish you could have one!

I agree. White picket fences always lend such charm to a home. Love the photo.

Love your picture. I'd love to have one of those older Victorian houses in the middle of town with a white picket. However, I live out in the rural area with no fence, and no Victorian, but I can still dream it, and your picture helps. Happy Tuesday..

That is a great fence! I'd like one at my house. :)

Like how you captured the fence with a iron gate and seeing into the yard beyond the gate and the sweet picket fence - is ideal make for an interesting camera shot as well.. I am crazy about picket fences and wish too that I had them around my place.. lovely image..

Love the charm of fences. There is something very quaint especially when they are white. Thank you for sharing the photo. I visited from Wordless Wed.

I love white picket fences. What a shame that your HOA won't allow them.

The subdivision that I live in does not allow fences either. I really want one! Mainly so I can have a dog and let them roam free in the backyard when they want :)
