The gate is certainly something that needs work, and i've been thinking about it stylistically.
This 15th cen french illumination from the Roman de la Rose does demonstrate many key features of medieval gardens, the fount, the walls, two types of fencing and a stone wall, turftopped benches, raised beds, etc, but i'm not too fond of the shape of the gate, though the idea of a tall gate in a shorter fence will be the look i'm going for.
This however is a delight.
I like how it echos the architecture of the period. Stylistically this seems more 'medieval' to me than the previous picture. What do you think?
oh, and bonus points if you know what the title of this blog is from (without consulting the oracle Google)
