ABC WEDNESDAY LETTER " G "



GATHER around folks for the next GALLERY installment
of the letter " G ".
A GARGOYLE seems to be GHOULISH
and to me, a rather
GROSS and GRIM GUARDIAN of the Winery Castle.
GRANTED, its just my opinion.



I liked the perspective of the GREEN GROUNDCOVER
between the GARDEN-like rows of GRAPEVINES.

They were not yet dressed for Spring.
I seem to GRAVITATE towards
scenes like this one.



As I GAZED at the GRAND view the fog GRADUALLY lifted
and I could see a GEM of a lake and the GLORIOUS mountains
covered in snow.
Be sure to enlarge each photo to see the detail better.



We found this GENUINE logo on the front of an antique stove.
The GREAT Western Stove was being used as a planter.
It was a pretty GOOD use for the appliance.
GIDDY-Up over to the link on my sidebar to see what the
GANG has GATHERED for ABC Wednesday Letter " G ".

I think my favorite picture is actually the stove logo! I would love to see a picture of the stove being used as a planter.

La gargouille est magnifique, et en plus elle ferait peur ;))

Thank goodness, we had French Toast for breakfast, otherwise seeing your breakfast fare in the previous post would have sent me to the kitchen! ;-)

Gorgeous shot of the mountains. The gorgoyle guarding the winery castle would scare me off. Great shots!

Gorgeous! Great choice for this week's G.

G is for....

Rosy said...

Enjoy your G post very much, and you just made me hungry for Pancakes too!

And that Gargoyle made me think of the ones that I had seen in the comedy movie of Ghost Busters.

Reader Wil said...

Gargoyles and Green Men are both architectural symbols and supposed to be guardians. I am really interested in these symbols.
Great post!

Cezar and Léia said...

Gargoyles always remind me of Paris and Notre Dame. Sigh!

EG Wow said...

Great gargoyle!I like the idea of a stove planter. A few years ago. a neighbour gave one away. I wanted to take it but my usually-good-natured husbands wouldn't let me take it. I bet it looks fabulous in someone else's garden. :)

Y. Ikeda said...

Lots of G's and good capture of statue, nature and sky!

Rambling Round said...

I have to agree with you about gargoyles! Perfect for G Day.

Starnitesky said...

Grand set of G photos, I like the foggy view best.

srp said...

I wish we had views like this close to us.... guess I will have to travel west to find them.

shopannies said...

Paula Scott said...

I’ve been following and enjoying your blog for a while now and would like to invite you to visit and perhaps follow me back. Sorry I took so long for the invitation.

I've got a few gargoyle photos - must remember to dig them out for the next round.

Mike said...

I love the Lake view... it looks almost English, apart from the snow capped mountains, although we do have some of those too.
