A Tree-lined Drive

These pictures were taken over a month ago but I wanted to use them before the weather got hot and the 'snow' pictures would look odd.

On a drive two of my daughters and I took just 'poking' around one day in the snow-covered village of Greenwich, Ct. we came upon an estate that was humongous! A large iron gate was at the end of a long tree-lined driveway.

This is my entry for Friday Fences. Thanks, Jan and Jer, for hosting this blog hop.

The entry gate. Notice the long drive. You can barely see the mansion sitting at the end of it. Looks a little like the White House, doesn't it?
 
The tree-lined driveway. The trees had twisted, gnarled limbs reaching for the sky. I have no idea what they are.
A closer view of the house and trees.
 
A closeup of the gate.

What a shame we just missed lunch with our hosts. Perhaps next time. (grin)

  3. It all looks so old and proper! The gate itself lends an air of elegance. Looks like everything is very well maintained. Great post, Latane. Very interesting.

    I wanted to mention your header and how it fascinates me. The bright, blue sky and the thin petals just intrique me....or is the PINK! I love pink.

    Have a nice evening,
