  1. Speaking of *gates*, the narrator in my poetry selection today leant upon a *coppice* gate….from Thomas Hardy’s The Darkling Thrush.
    So, about the coppice?  Seen any of those?  I had to look it up.  I was guessing it was a way of forming the gate, but learned that it’s a thicket 🙂
    Bet you knew that.
    Oh~! May we have a photo of your driver, m’am?

  2. carol,
    enjoying the trip with you – and wondering about scottish blood in our family (my aunt’s name is iona)
    gates and doors – the excitement of the expectation 
    everytime i open our gate (we bought a house recently) i feel like a queen entering her castle – the gate is a wrought-iron gate embedded in a wall
    enjoying the figurative meaning of gates and doors in our lives too..
    enjoy!
