Hello, what a beautiful gate and entrance. The sky is a lovely color blue too. Thanks for hosting! Have a happy day and weekend ahead.

Pix Under the Oaks said...

It's very pretty with all the stone but I think it is a bit frilly. Just something basic would work for me. But one fancy gate you found, Tex! Good Morning!

Kenneth Cole Schneider said...

Lots of planning and labor (and $$$) went into that entry! Very nice.

Lynn said...

Wow, very ornate gate:@)

magnoliasntea said...

Love it, and there's an old western song about an adobe hacienda playing in my head after seeing that beautiful gate.
Happy Thursday!

Hilary Melton-Butcher said...

What a pretty gate! It's the most beautiful gate ever :)

Gayle venturesinphotos said...

Lovely to look at and probably all wired for security.

Andrea Priebe said...

The only thing that is missing is the Peacock strutting across the drive. Really a beautiful entrance, Theresa.

Inger said...

This one is not how I imagine a Texas gate, too pretty or something. Have a good day, Tex.

photodoug said...

Theresa, majestic entrance. Thanks for sharing.

S. J. Qualls said...

Very schmaltzy, hard to picture it in Texas, more like Palm Springs or somewhere ...

Melissa said...

That is pretty fancy! If I had just seen the closeup of the gate, I wouldn't have guessed it led to a ranch.

Bev said...

Very elegant!

Sandra said...

this is gorgeous. kind of a Alamon look to it. love it

Gosia k said...

looks lovely

John @ Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

Fancy indeed. I like that ironwork especially all the filigree.

don said...

A remarkable and fancy gate. The owner must be proud of this fine entrance.

Jan said...

I wonder if the house is as impressive as the entrance to the estate. Excellent details.

Tanya Breese said...

that is quite fancy!

Ruth Hiebert said...

Oh my goodness! That is very ornate.

Wowee wow!! That is a beauty. Impressive.
I couldn't find a good fence or gate this time so had to post something different.
Sorry

matti juhani niilola said...

Hi. a nice-looking fence, but that gate is just insanely awesome

Wayne said...

Complete with a terracotta roof. The wagon wheels add the Texas touch.

William Kendall said...

Quite an entrance!

Miss Val's Creations said...

Wow, this one is a beauty! I love the stone walls. The ornate gate is a stunner.

LV said...

Old saying things in Texas are bigger, but in this case more elaborate. Wonder what the house looks like. Another winner Theresa.

Ginny Garza said...

Wowsers!!! Very pretty! I usually prefer the simple, but have to admit that's gorgeous!

Jeevan said...

RedPat said...

It has a Mediterranean feel to it, Tex! Quite lovely and unexpected.

Jo said...

What a beautifully ornate gate. Thanks for hosting this meme, Theresa. I'll post my Good Fences tomorrow (Friday). Greetings Jo

Helma said...

Beautiful fences in your blog.
Again many great links with beautiful fences.
I also want to thank you for linking my other blog in the post for fences :-)

mick said...

Great photos of a very interesting ranch gate. I wonder if the house is as impressive behind that gate.

sonia a. mascaro said...

Yes, I agree! Just a fancier gate and ranch.
Thanks for hosting "Good Fences", Theresa!

eViL pOp TaRt said...

That gate should go with a palace! Beautiful all the way!

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

It's beautiful and definitely serves the purpose! It would be hard to sneak under that gate...or around it! Enjoy your day sweet lady! Hugs, Diane

Joseph Jameson-Gould said...

Wow! That IS fancy! Looks quite odd with that little section of wall and all the rest just plain, white fences. I guess if you stand in front of the gate and make sure you can't see over the wall, it might feel like you're in front of some mansion in Cyprus

Mariette VandenMunckhof-Vedder said...

Dearest Theresa,
That indeed looks like a very fancy, almost 'upscale' ranch entrance!
Hugs,
Mariette

Barb said...

Texas is a state of gates and fences! This one's pretty.

ifthethunderdontgetya™³²®© said...

(As long as they don't have to drive a tall truck through there!)

Paula said...

Linda said...

That's much more formal than you usually see.

Brk Trt said...

"Upscale" and very beautiful.

Wow, la di da! Probably electronic too. Opens when they approach or something. It is pretty!

That's a grand entrance with a little oriental touch.

Anvilcloud said...

Some folk don't foll around when it comes to fences/gates.

Pretty solidly built alright, looks like they might be planning to stay awhile!

Lux G. said...

This fence I love so much. It's elegant.

Ms. A said...

Somebody has some bucks and good taste in fences! And you can bet they don't have to get out in the elements to open and close it either.

Weekend-Windup said...

Beautiful fence. Love the design in the gate.

Phil Slade said...

If those are the gates I'd sure like to see inside the home and grounds. Guess I'd need an invitation?

Lynne said...

Some may say "fancy" . . .
I say "frilly" . . .
I will give it a vote for well built and sturdy!

Terri @ Coloring Outside the Lines said...

Now that's a fancy gate!

Ian H said...

Nice! But, somebody had too much money.

stardust said...

What a gorgeous entrance! If I see the second photo only, I’d think it’s a gate not to ranch but to residence.

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

I love the ones that look like a real working Ranch better. This one is elegant , but reminds me of the ones some people put in front of their McMansions up here in this part of the country.

Terry and Linda said...

That's a million dollar fence, for sure!

Linda

Now that is one fancy looking fence/gate!

Oh wow. Not something I would expect to see in Texas. Lovely iron work, but I don't quite understand it...the grandeur I mean.

Chandra@GreenComotion said...

Very ornate gate and a beautiful sky to go with it!
Nicely captured, Theresa.
Have a Happy Sunday!
Peace :)

Ela said...

That's a beautiful gate !!
Happy weekend !

John's Island said...

Hi Tex, Congrats on another Good Fences! The fence in your photos is very nice but it sure isn't much of my idea of a "Texas" fence. It looks more like Florida to me. I do like the wagon wheels though. Your photos are well done!

Betty Manousos said...

that is one beautiful gate! love the design in it. great photos too.

big hugs!

Mary Kirkland said...

Very nice gate.

Bob Bushell said...

Beautiful photos. I love 'em.

wildlifewatcher said...

Hi Tex, Sure is a fancy entrance to that ranch. Typical of some of the better ranch gates with lots of dollars spent. Good picture! Have a wonderful week ahead!

Pom Pom said...

Very fancy! Wow! Makes me wonder what the house looks like. Take care, good TJ!

Small Kucing said...

Wow..very intricate gate. The blacksmith is very talented

Stewart M said...

Does a fancy gate always lead to a fancy ranch?

Cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne

orchid Miyako said...

Dearest Theresa; Oh, Such a fancy fence which has Urban atmosphere, but I can sense sweet Texas feeling as well♡♡♡
