Gates of Glory
Usually a gate is just a door in a fence. In Hoboken, a gate means the whole front yard, small as it is, and, even though the garbage cans are always nearby, a lot of effort is expended in making "the gate" pretty and welcoming.Some gates are simple, with a few boxes of coleus or other colorful, leafy, low maintenance plants. The house speaks for itself, but the gate is like a cheery smile. Sometimes we find a handsome cover for the garbage cans.But usually we don't. What will I do with my gate? Come back to the blog in a few months and I'll show you.
