Toucan gate

Another of my fun neighborhood gates...

I often walk past this one and have wondered,  "Why the toucans?" I still don't know, but recently came across this poem that I thought was fun.

The Toucan by Shel Silverstein
Tell me who can
Catch a toucan?
Lou can.

Just how few can
Ride the toucan?
Two can.

What kind of goo can
Stick you to the toucan?
Glue can.

Who can write some
More about the toucan?
You can!

BTW - if you look closely at the bottom of the gate, you can just see a nose and a set of paws guarding the entrance.


  1. Fun picture - It's always interesting to see how people decorate their homes and their lives. There is almost certainly a story behind this!

    Gotta love Shel Silverstein!

  2. This is FANTASTIC! I've just now discovered that I'm a toucan oh man...milk in a bottle or milk in a can? is milk in a can a 'moo' can?

    (Seriously, I love those toucans and I'm gonna duplicate them and place a pair in my 'secret' garden one day.)
