Wildfire Recovery Update - Ode to Toad and Frog Finials at the Gate




The front gates to the property have been completed in their refurbishment !

From burned and charred... they were cleaned, primed and painted with a happy fresh green…


The gate posts were painted with a hammered gold paint… striking against the striped black and green landscape and yet very earthy looking.


Frog finials were ordered and handmade for the 6x6 posts 


which I then painted with coordinating colors.


The original brass numbers were also cleaned, painted and nailed back up.


Why this Ode to Toads, you ask ?

Because after 8 days of evacuation when watering the garden it was the very first critter that greeted me back home.


May the spirit of frog and toad cleanse & restore the land and all its occupants ! 


May they live long and prosper & be a symbol of hope for our neighborhood.
