Here was another one of those daily prompts that I couldn’t ignore. An open gate always seems to be an invitation to walk right in, and a closed one just makes me want to climb over the wall and see what’s on the other side. Luckily I didn’t have to do any climbing at the Cuneo Mansion in Vernon Hills. I just had to walk around the wall. The gate had a totally different appearance on the other side.
Visitors are always welcome to walk in at the English Walled Garden in the Chicago Botanic Garden.

Today’s subject for Jennifer Nichole Wells’ Halloween Challenge is gate, and I must admit that I had to dig deep into the photo files to come up with something for this one. Plenty of doors but not many gates.

I’m guessing these may have originally been gates although there is now a bench positioned right in front of them. Possibly decorated with Chihuly glass pieces, they were at the Missouri Botanical Garden in St Louis.
