Great wooden entrance and the gate is pretty sweet, too! Nice!

Brian King said...

Looking again, maybe that entrance is metal. Either way I like it.

Christine said...

Its a new one to me and a classic at that! The new cut out for the gate is a beauty!
Thanks for hosting and commenting! Much appreciated!

Kenneth Cole Schneider said...

A modest home with a refined but non-pretentious gate.

NatureFootstep said...

nice gate.

Hope your world is not as hot as ours. :)

Lynn said...

Another well kept property:@)

Hi Tex, it is a pretty entrance. I like the cut-out and name. Thanks for hosting, have a great day and weekend ahead!

Pom Pom said...

There must be thriving businesses that make gates and fences. The trees look bare. I love it when they get their leaves and we can enjoy them all summer.

HOOTIN ANNI said...

Unlike now...everything is so green back in the Spring!!

genie said...

The gates and fences of Texas. You know how to show them off. They are amazing to this old Virginia gal. genie

Nancy Chan said...

Nice cut-out swing gate. Neat and well-kept place.

LV said...

No matter when or if you shared this, the way you present things makes it worthwhile twice around. Trust things are well with you and staying cool.

Sandra said...

the gate if wonderful and the TREES are spectacular to me.

Debbie said...

it's a texas style entrance!! i like the addition of the cut out...cattle and horses??

the big blue sky offers a beautiful backdrop!!!!

DJan said...

Nice! I also enjoyed seeing that Texas spring sky. :-)

Linda at To Behold The Beauty said...

I had the same thought that Pom Pom did about the booming gate business in your area. Gates like that are very rare here in Indiana. In fact, I can think of only one that I've seen. I need to find it again so I can get a picture of it. :)

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

Very nice scene for their fence! Very Texan! Enjoy your day sweet lady. Hugs, Diane

RedPat said...

Very nice! I like it!

Marit Sønstebø said...

Very beautiful gate! I liked it very much.

S. J. Qualls said...

I imagine the Evans family is quite proud of the Big Easy. I would be too. Very nice!

Tanya Breese said...

is this where the evans live? ;)

Andrea Priebe said...

The good thing about being old is that you forget things ... so this fence is new to me even if you shared it before. It is, indeed, an awesome gate :)

The cut out is quite spectacular and expensive looking.

Looks nice against the blue sky.

I love the swing of it, thanks.

Pretty neat gate, Don't have too many fancy gates out this way or at least I can't find them.

That is quite a welcoming gate!

Ruth Kelly said...

It's a lovely gate worth sharing more than once.

Bev said...

Plain and simple?

don said...

A fine presentation of this very attractive gate. The owner cared enough to spent the money to create an unusual gate. Thanks for checking me in today.

Farm Girl said...

What a very nice gate!!

Inger said...

That's an impressive gate.

It's a nice one. It's not too ornate for the house.

The cut-out is exquisite. I always admire work like that.

On this dreary day in Ohio the blues and greens really look great. Love the cutout too!

Hi Theresa-
The Evans Ranch looks awesome, with that nice fence, vegetation and the lovely blue skies.

Hello. True mighty gate. Greetings.

FOREST SNAPPER said...

some good metal work in this gate photo, many thanks for hosting and for linking me in. I most likely to forget to it after golf, due to the red wine after the match. Have a great weekend.

Stephen Hayes said...

The shape of the ironwork fits the gate perfectly.

Sally said...

I love it and actually it looks quite a bit like one of the farms over in W FL. :)

Susan said...

Wow, that is a cool gate!

Giga said...

Love that gate! My favorite kind of fence is one that doesn't need fixing.

Cool looking gate, and it does look new. Nice capture!

Brk Trt said...

Nice contrast, a little bit of wood and a little bit of iron, and it equals a lot of charm.

Revrunner said...

Under new management.

Mama Zen said...

I like it!

Red said...

These people had a good eye for detail.

Debby Ray said...

A very lovey entryway...and no doubt way cooler in those pics than it is anywhere. I can almost feel the cool air coming through the screen :)

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

Dale Evans? :)

messymimi said...

A very nice looking place.

ifthethunderdontgetya™³²®© said...

I see a lot of Texas is in drought again, is it o.k. where you are?

Celestina Marie said...

What a great swing gate and property. A beautiful setting. Have a nice weekend and stay cool!!

Rita said...

I wonder when they sell ranches in Texas if they take their name plates off the fences and gates to bring with them when they go?

Terry and Linda said...

I have always liked swing gates!

Linda

Mary Kirkland said...

That's a nice one. The background is certainly nice too.

Midmarsh John said...

It's great the way each property has a very individual and personal entrance gate.

TheChieftess said...

Love the gate!

Pantherka said...

The entrance gate looks beautiful.

nookworm said...

Every time I think of Texas now, I'm aware of all the different gates and fences. Then I think of longhorn steer, critters and heat. Interesting ranch reports here.

mick said...

Great photo. I like the contrast of the metal gate with the straight clean lines of the timbers.

Lowcarb team member said...

It looks good to me, and the cut out works well.

Enjoy your weekend

All the best Jan

McGuffy Ann Morris said...

I like this, T. It is creative and unique. Nice!

Denise inVA said...

Hi Theresa, thank you for your sweet comments on my father-in-law's passing. I appreciate very much your kindness and will pass them on to the family.

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

I like this one so much; personalized, not overtly showy -- a perfect fence and gate. Thank you for hosting!!

Gert said...

This is very cool! To have so many pretty gates near you is neat!!

Blessings
Gert

orchid Miyako said...

Dearest Theresa; Cut-out is really Lovely and I always wish to see these sweet fences guided by you♬♬♬
Hope you are not having unbearable hot summer like ours(^^;) So sorry for my usual late comment, 2 groups of soba guests finally over.

Sending Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan to my Dear friend in America, xoxo Miyako*

Lynne said...

Great fence . . .
I think having a iron made home/fence scroll sounds like a good 'dea . . .
Although . . . an expensive one, no doubt!
I missed the link up time but I just posted a Good Fence . . .
Happy weekend . . .

Busy Bee Suz said...

Is that like living on Eazy Street?? Love the personal name plate; clever!!

rainfield61 said...

I first read it as "A Big Crazy".

How crazy I am.

Terri @ Coloring Outside the Lines said...

Oh I love the new cut out- that is fancy! Love the gate too. I've been contemplating a gate for a few weeks now...just trying to figure out the logistics since I have a son in law trucker that would have to swing off the highway and time the opening just right....not sure that will work. But I do want a gate, and this one is nice.

Rose said...

Nice! Roger used to work with a guy and his nickname was E-Z.

genie said...

Your Painted Buntings are absolutely beautiful. They make me think of the birds we saw along the Pacific coast of Costa Rica. So many colors on just one little bird. Amazing. genie

edenhills said...

Nice, neat place. I can't imagine how you could not repeat gates after this long. I am always impressed with the large number of gates you have around you.

Betty Manousos said...

wonderful gate framed by an even more wonderful background.
the cut-out is very pretty, too!
xoxo

Felicia said...

SweetMarie said...

Pat Tillett said...
