I think I can figure out what makes this one secret... The hush that comes over one who is contemplating going through the gate and venturing into the seductive darkness just beyond the shock of light green...That is a secret place for sure... where any number of magical, secretive, breathtaking things may occur! and. . . when you return you must keep the secrets!!!
Carved out of yellow cedar, the intricate pattern on this front gate (which faces into the yard so it can be admired from the porch and garden) was inspired by a bench at a Mexican resort. The handsome wrought-iron latch complements the solidity of the design.

Back view of the Poppy Gate (lower flower heads were turned around to add interest). Hand forged by Nottinghamshire based Artist Blacksmith Adrian Stapleton of Trinity Forge. Really delicate, beautiful, and I love that it's not straight across.
I like this worn out old rusty one! I imagine years of happy use and little ones in and out daily:)
