If there is one thing I can't get enough of,
it is the sight of a beautiful garden path.
And there are so many images of garden paths around the web
that today I'm going to share a few more.
Some garden paths are very formal,
as is this one from Chicago Home magazine:
Formality often feels a little restrictive to me,
so I prefer paths that are a little more relaxed.
This clover path invites play:
On the other hand,
some designs combine the two elements into a seemingly effortless design.
This checkerboard path from Fresh Home magazine is clever
in its mix of formality and fun.
How about a path through a pond?
Another Fresh Home walkway:
I think this one, also from Fresh Home, is definitely my favorite.
The blue hydrangeas, boxwood, and impatiens remind me of the Shire:
If only I had such a green thumb.
I'm the kind of gardener that plunks a plant in the planter, ground, or pot
and if it lives with a little water and occasional fertilizer,
then it lives.
If it can't make it on that, it won't be around for long.
I have a hunch the owners of these garden paths
don't share that philosophy.
