Brick, stone, tile, sand, grass…garden paths can be beautiful, fun, peaceful.
Today I came across this picture of a whimsical garden path.
The first thing I thought when I saw this picture was that it would be impossible to simply walk down this path. A person would have to dance down it. Or constantly spin around–spinning to look at the beautiful rose on one side of the path, and then spinning to look at the lavender on the other side of the path. I suppose a person could jump or hop from one swirl to another. Or even skip off to see a wizard.
Dancing, spinning, jumping, hopping, skipping…but, never, never, could a person just walk.
Nothing is more the child of art than a garden.
Sir Walter Scott
