Maybe you are looking for ideas for a pathway through your yard or garden...or maybe, like me, you just love pathways. Whatever brought you here, I hope you enjoy taking a stroll through the garden, a hike through the forest, or just a walk in the park. Brick, stone, sand, or grass, wooden or strewn with leaves....I love pathways!
Some of my favorite pathways are from Mom and Dad's old place.
Doesn't this old brick pathway just invite you to
walk down the hill to the garden?
And once you get to the garden....
you can't help but follow the maze of lush green pathways.
Once you make your way back up the hill,
you'll find more pathways at the front of the house.
You can take the paving stone pathway
leading through more flower beds to the driveway,
or if you prefer,
this stepping stone pathway leads around the other side of the house
where you can enjoy sitting on the shaded deck.
This pathway in our old yard, is a mix of rocks and split logs.
There's also a little stream to step across, hidden in the flowers.
This leaf strewn pathway meandered through the trees in the same yard.
This well worn path was created by a motor bike and ATV...
but it sure looks pretty surrounded by all those dandelions!
No pathway lover can resist a boardwalk!
This one is located in Sprucewoods Park.
I like them so much, we made one in our own back yard!
Not quite the same, but I like the way it turned out.
Wood chips, make a nice covering for pathways.
We had such a good time walking these ones
through the English Garden in the Assiniboine Park.
These brick pathways led us through the Butterfly Gardens,
located in the Assiniboine Park Zoo.
Then there are pathways that I love for sentimental reasons.
This sandy road leads up the big hill at Jackson's Lake.
And this trail leads back down to the lake.
It's been a few years since we've been hiking
but I love these trails at Spruce Woods Park.
There's an amazing view from the top of this trail.
And closer to home...
our trails through the Spruce Woods Wildlife Refuge.
And these ATV trails along the edge of the forest.
What is your favorite pathway? Stepping stones across a stream, a meandering garden path, or do you prefer the path less travelled? Life is full of pathways....choosing the right one makes all the difference.
