Wrought iron railings and a matched pair of formal, stone columns are framed with brightly colored blossoms in precisely laid out flowerbeds. Slate stepping stones add a touch of whimsy with their staggered placement – go ahead, no one will object if you give in to treasured memories of hopscotch.
Unabashedly rustic and with roots planted deep in the traditions of hospitality found throughout the Great Southwest, there's an easy-going sense of welcome to this wooden entryway. Matched hurricane lamps suspended on either side light the way at night and cast a glow on the desert plants that grow with apparent spontaneity on either side. Brick pavers extend toward the inner courtyard, inviting all to enter here in friendship.
Tranquil and elegantly simplistic, there's a Zen-like sense of mystic to these gates. What secrets lie beyond the wooden slats? Absent are handles, pulls, or other apparent opening devices. Perhaps one need only present a pure heart to discover where these gates may lead.
