"Oh my goodness,what must the neighbours think" comes to mind,but as they are probably several miles away it wont matter too much..
A fine variety of objects all a ghastly pink is certainly eye catching and makes an interesting photograph,me,I`ll stick with the usual boring green.
Best wishes for 2014 and beyond,

something special and original from you to accompany the sentiments of the commentary so perfectly. Looks so wonderful in this setting under blue African skies. Yet another storm brewing here so this is a delight!
All the very, very best for 2014 - B.

A funny and very attractive gate to the new year! We only hope for better times.
Enjoy a nice party!

Beautiful sentiment, and a great shot to portray it too! I would imagine this is a rather surreal thing to encounter while walking through the countryside :) Lovely vibrant colors and caught under wonderful light, while the path on the right leads deep into the scene.
Thank you also for your recent commnet on my pic, indeed it was a pleasure to meet you this year, as its been a pleasure learning about the world through your lens! I look forward to sharing more in 2014, and I wish you and yours the best of everything.
All the best from Ireland!

quale migliore augurio per un felice anno nuovo di questa composizione ricca di colori vivaci che ci ricorda anche che in Namibia da poco è iniziata l'estate e la natura si è risvegliata dal letargo invernale.
Auguri di buon anno anche a te. Mi auguro che il nuovo sia per te ricco di tante soddisfazioni.

What a lovely wish!
Happiness is a very important part of life!
I would suspect that the owner of this property is an optimistic individual!
A lovely, colourful, heart-cheering photograph!
Thank you for your good wishes.
May I extend an equally happy and healthy New Year to you and your family,

hi rosemary. first time i see a farm gate covered with strawberry creme, it definitely looks so delicious :) all the best to you and your beloved ones in the new year!
chrislo (4097) 2013-12-31 14:33
Looks like Barbie's farm with all that pink stuff ! We'd all love to look at the world through rose-coloured glasses, still it's good to believe that the New Year will be better than the last one. May the gates you open lead to wonderful things for you and become the dreams you have yet to fulfill.
Wishing you all the very best for 2014.

Rosemary, Happy New Year to you as well! This is a wonderful shot to see today, when it is about 17 degrees F here in Boston, with 10" of snow on the way Thursday. Wonderful light as always, and a very intriguing subject. Thanks.

original subject and very cheerful! I like the idea of surrounding ourselves with the colors even on the trivial items and the person who owns this place obviously likes the idea too. Well spotted and nicely captured, with bright tones and superb light and sharpness.
All the best in New Year!

A very happy and healthy New Year to you too.
Another interesting setting from you. The pinks against green and blue, are really attractive. A nice find it is, presented in your unique style.

Hi Rosemary,a very original post to celebrate the end of 2013,this pink world is very strange but i like it,nice capture and beautiful scenery in background in the usual top quality.All the best to you too and thanks,Luciano

Now that is what I call pink. I wonder what kind of family lives on a farm like that. It must be quite an odd sight in the african bush.
May the new year bring happiness, joy and health to you and your family.
macjake (68386) 2014-01-01 5:11
Yes, Happy New Year to you as well.
I'm not sure if all my gates will be as pink as this one lol but i'll try :)
for sure a cute and colorful adaptation of a New Years Photo to put a smile on our faces, It worked :)
Lets hope for good travels in 2014

All the best in 2014!

Sensational .... very original and funny composition, great idea to say goodbye to 2013. Surprised all those objects in pink at the door, I think of a property, the scenery is splendid with those big trees, towering over the blue sky so clean.
Beautiful color range of these natural tones.
Good management of light and good sharpness.
My wishes for you and also for your family, a Happy and Prosperous New Year 2014.
All the best.

It is really funny! Simple thing, just to take some pink paint and to hang some pink objects on the gate, and what a result. You can't see it without the smile. very nice photo, lest's hope for many smiles in the new year.
Warmest regards MAlgo
holmertz (53414) 2014-01-02 7:20
This is a very original gate and a pleasantly original New Year's greeting. The owner of this place must have had a lot of pink paint since he/she used it on practically everything. Fortunately enough green grass and leaves were left untouched to provide a fine balance of colours.
Kind regards, and wishing you a great 2014.
