If it walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, ... Never heard the term before.

I agree - a beautiful piece of art.
You always know how to get the shot just right - I do admire that.

I guess we call it gingerbread here but whatever it is called it is beautiful on a house or even an old barn. You have a way that makes a shot interesting. MB

I'm with Hilda--A rose by any other name... Lovely.

PERBS said...

We call it gingerbread here. Never heard of the other term. , , until now. Heard of gingerbread in fairy tales. . . and I don't mean gingerbread man.

Sarah said...

Funny name! This is reminiscent of Eastern Europe wooden architecture, at least I think it is. I'm not too sure anymore. Whatever, it's gorgeous and I would love to come home to it every day!

Jacob said...

Well, that's very nice, but where in the world did the term "bargeboard" come from?

Happily Retired Gal said...

Whatever it's called ... this is LOVELY ;--)
Hugs and blessings,

Michelle said...

Gingerbread for sure. It is a lovely shot.

Ellie said...

It is like 4 different styles of roofing in a one small place - nice details!

Wonderful detail!

Jacob,
Wikipedia says: Bargeboard (probably from Medieval Latin bargus, or barcus, a scaffold. ;-)

Jacob said...

Thanks, E.G. I didn't mean to give you more work...thought you might know. I'd never heard the term before...which really doesn't mean anything...but...

Have a great day!

This is an interesting mix with the bricks, wood work and asphalt tiles. The wood work is lovely.

I'd prefer 'Ginger Bread'... I have made some like these when I worked in a joiners shop.... it was one of the many things that we made I can see each time I visit the town centre... I still get pleasure 25 years on looking up and thinking I had a part in making them...

I had never heard bargeboard, either, but either way it is lovely. Though any time I see work like this, I think about how much work goes into painting it alone.

I love that design!
