Rusty Gate With Scrolls & Cobwebs........




I fell in love with this rusty old mellow-yellow gate on the
 Glen Ewin Estate property near Houghton in the Adelaide Hills

Its endearing qualities being lots of rust
coupled with intricate patterned spider silk





This estate was originally home to the famous Glen Ewin jam factory
which unfortunately ceased to operate in 1988

The buildings are now used as a function centre
 and wine storage facility.


And where does this lane-way lead to ?
That's just it
I don't know !!


take a visit over to see what others
have found to post on "Mellow Yellow Monday"

I do like wrought iron, especially when it is rusty and covered with silken thread.

Though it is covered with rust, the style looks great and retained its elegance.

I believe there is a saying that "If you rest you rust". If only we could rust so elegantly.

VP said...

You just reminded me of Neil Young's "Rust never slesps"! The idea of a jam factory is very interesting...

The gate's great but the undergrowth is another matter ... I've got rather too much undergrowth like that in my garden ... creeping across the the neighbours.
