Olive Tree's House

This is the entrance to a large country property tucked away off the main mountain road. I thought it looked charming, and it has many features that although not in use today, are still in place, and a reminder of bygone days.



 

I drew myself up to all of my 1,64cent, and them some,  by standing on tiptoes but was unable to see over the wall.
 

The bell covered by a little red tiled roof.
 

The bell pull.
 

Even at a distance I was unable to show you the true height of this huge tree.
 

Typical blue and white tiles with the name of the house, which is "Olive Tree's House"

 
I am linking this, and last weeks post, to Good Fences, where you will find many more gates, railings, and fences, from around the world. Many thanks to our gracious host Theresa at the Run A Round Ranch. If you would like to participate in this meme just click on the link Good Fences.

Thank you for sharing such a beautiful old gate. It is really something. Love the old bell and the pull, the tile and that marvelous old tree.

So, I am assuming you can't get through the gate. Too bad, I bet it'd be a grand tour.

Yes, that tree is colossal!! Magnificent and Majestic all rolled into one.

Love the bell pull. Well, everything today is great.

That's s simply huge tree. I wonder how many children have rung that bell and then run off to hide. It looks very tempting.
