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.



  1. LOVE the frogs! You did a fabulous job on the gate! It looks so awesome.

  2. Wow, that looks beautiful! Love the story behind your guardian frogs; may they protect Twilight forever more!

    1. Awww Thanks so much for the blessing… it is my wish to see wildfire restored. I have seen so so few toads since the fire. Looking forward to restoration. xo
