Gateway in Rutgers Gardens

Here’s how some of the plots at Rutgers Gardens looked in early May. I expect in one month those piles of dirt will be showing flowers and/or vegetables.

I like how they didn’t just put up a gate; this doorway with a sun is a welcoming feature.

I like the overview in the first photo, where we see the mounds of dirt and the varied plots.

The gate is a wonderful touch, adding emotion and charm to the gardens. The texture blends are wonderful.

That's a wonderful design!

I like this gate a lot. Is it made of metal?

Leora says

I thought it was wood. I'll have to get up close to it sometime in the next month or two and report back.

Dimple says

Very attractive gate, and perfect for a garden!

I look forward to see the flower beds in full bloom, Leora! :)

Nice entrance to the garden. I would guess the fence is to keep the wildlife from eating the garden. Thasnk for visiting my windows. The first two images were taken last July and there were not many people out. Both are shops on the first floor. I don't know if people live upstairs. The alley beside the last house was quiet, but their were lots of people one the main streets May 1 when that one was taken.

"keep the wildlife from eating the garden" - oh, I'm sure. We have a lot of garden lovers in our area! Small ones and big ones (deer).

I am pretty sure that is a wood gate, if memory serves me correctly.
I have always loved Rutger's Gardens.
I really used to love that bamboo forest there.
Thanks for bringing back fond memories for me.
Always great to check into your blog.
Boy I wish I could get myself out on a canoe!
Good for you.
Shabbat Shalom.

Nice to hear from you, Yael. I'll try to visit Rutgers Gardens once per month - I think that would be fun. But time sure slips by fast, with work and kids and...
