My current house gate

Ours is a corner house with a gate facing opposite to the gate of a school (sishya) and what I like about this gateway was its ladder arch.  I have seen many houses with such arches in my early days and this house, which is suppose to knock down soon, belong to the same old category.

House Gate and Arched gateway
The arch also let climb the eternal jasmine vine, beautifully adorning the gateway in pretty green and white little blossoms. After shifted to this house, plucking flowers from the jasmine vine has become an activity for my mom every evening. Planned to change the house in a week so, mom sure going to miss her one of the activities, but it isn’t a matter as the plant can grow anywhere planting its stems. The flowers also smell pleasant in fragrance.

Jeevan,
It is beautiful gate with a lovely arch. I also like the compound wall. Those are rare here, unless you have infinite resources :)

Have a Beautiful Day!

Arches look very good if a creeper runs through it! You're lucky to have both in this house. Are you shifting once again? To which area?

DI – Yes, we are shifting house once again but within the area of Adyar, and to the street/nagar parallel to the one we live currently. The owners of this house has decided to demolish and rebuilt a new building in this place, since this house has become very old.

I would love to grow grapes across the arch and the pluck the grapes to munch at the gate while watching the world go by.

The gate is beautiful, the house too will be beautiful for sure.
I wonder why they wish to bring it down.
