G/Alphabe-Thursday

 Gazebo, Charlotte Beach, New York

G is for GAZEBOS

Gazebos are such lovely structures, don't you think? The first is strikingly beautiful especially in this early-morning winter light. Gazebos are often seen in public spaces but...

some are privately owned and are pretty additions to spacious gardens, even in winter.

And some are screened to keep out pesky summer bugs.

i like the golden light in the top of first one, and the screened one is not as pretty but is more practical, especially here, since we have bugs year round.

see you there! said...

I need one of those in my back yard.

I have just the spot for one of these. They are so pretty, and that last one has a great reflection.

Lovely gazebo reflection. These are sometimes called "summer houses" so I suspect they don't get much use this time of year.

Kathy said...

I could do some nice relaxing in one of these.

Wonderful series, EG. Our eldest daughter was married in a gazebo at a country club in south Florida. Worked out beautifully! The wedding and the marriage. :-)

Small City Scenes said...

I would love to have a gazebo. I had all the makings for my son in law to build me one but it never happened. I have used the lumber for other things now. MB

All beautiful; wonderful locale for family photos. But I think the golden glow in the first shot is my favorite.

Wonderful photos! We had a gazebo in Tucson, and I miss it!!

I love a gazebo by the water - a summertime breakfast or time to read a book and doze off - the perfect place!
