This house not far from us has a gorgeous Curved Heel gate
With our 5 sons in their twenties/thirties very slow to give us grandchildren, we really had no use for the little Fairy House at the bottom of the garden that came with the house when we purchased 2 yrs. ago. So we thought it should go to a good home & donated it to my best friend's young grandchildren. The only issue was that they live on a large property in Victoria, so getting it transported to the farm presented a slight problem. Always the innovative farmer, their dad Rob drove his trailer over & with a few beers for strength, the 'boys' lifted the Fairy House from the garden & loaded it onto the trailer.
The photos of the big move are great, & the Fairy House riding high on the trailer for the 500km. trip home apparently got many second looks from fellow highway travellers! However, to get the trailer through the Laurel Hedge on the day, we needed to remove a small single gate and enlarge the hedge with a few 'trims' of the chain saw. So we now have a large gap that needs a new gate & so the story of the stand-off begins.
The Man-of-the-House wants the metal model from Farmweld, but I just love the look of the traditional wooden Curved Heel beauty from Country Gates. So who will win out? Your support please my blogging friends!!
