I heard voices in the garden and opened the gate to find a little girl signing my guest book. She had brought the painting to the garden with her dad. She had set it on the ground near a big rock.

The Dad said her older sister had asked them to bring her painting to "the secret garden" for her. I was very touched that a child would paint a picture for the garden and told them we would put a frame on it and hang it for everyone to see.

One day I'll have to let you take a peek at the nice things people say in the guest book.

Thank you Vi for sharing that sweet story and new pictures of your Secret Garden. I think you should maybe ask that nice little girl to bring her sister over one afternoon and serve them tea and cookies. Or maybe lemonade and cookies. They would never forget that experience.

Your garden reflects love, caring and lots of attention, and children, even little boys, respond to those qualities, and always to the beauty of a garden. I think they relate it to Eden, maybe, and the stories they've read or heard about the Garden of Eden.

I have 3 teenagers and a 9 year old. We went rock "hunting" and searched all over for free wood chips. Filled the truck load after load and layed the chips down on top of plastic. And made this garden path on the side of our home. We trimmed some trees and made trellises. The only thing we purchased for the garden path was a birdbath I got for Mother's Day and some flats of flowers...we love it. The best compliment I received was "Dang Tracey, I feel like I should be paying to walk on your path".

I read your explanation of how you guys hunted for free materials and built the path, but when the picture finally appeared on my slow computer, I was amazed at how beautiful it really is. It looks like a path from a Disney film, it must be a wonderful place to be after a long day. If everyone believed in their own ability to create like you guys did, imagine how stunning the world would be.

With winter being so bad in many parts of the country now I hope everyone will enjoy the roses that we have blooming in the yard. Some of them are as big as my hand.

A lady from another neighborhood was walking her granddaughter through the garden. She said her daughter lives in our area and she babysits every week for her. She comes down the garden path a lot ...

A nice person asked me to send these two pictures in so people could see the difference from our side of the path and the other side of the green belt. This path runs through from our block to the school.

Another surprise tucked away in the garden today. These look to be wooden dolls, but may be resin. I picked up one and the far hand is missing. So I sat it back and will go look tomorrow and glue them down where they were left, on the ladder.

When it comes to rose buds, I love the clear colors and so pure, as this white one from the Path Garden. Here is another Angel Face, full opened. Enjoy each in their own beauty.

A friend donated this plant. I don't know the name, she collects succulents and has many. She doesn't know the names of all of them yet. But the flowers are so pretty and there were 6-8 on the one plant this year. Now they are growing so fast and I will move more of them around in The Path Garden and will have to plant some in pots for the "plant give away" next spring. I pray that we'll get rain this year. The Path Garden isn't doing well with out it.

Some one has left garden art at the Path garden and at our gate. One day we had this angel at the gate, and another that was left with a broken head that had been fixed and a leg in pieces left on a tree stump.

Jupiter's Beard is a good cut flower. It self seeds. They need little water and is surviving in poor clay soil here on the "Path Garden". It could be a weed soon. LOL

I am growing Jupiters Beard along the springhouse at my parents house. The plant does not stand upright, it lays in the grass. Any suggestions as to what I am doing wrong? Thank you.

Because our yard is 2 steps down from "The Path Garden" and we had to pile dirt (sand bags) up to keep the rain from flooding the back yard. So we just built the planting area like a raised bed.

Here is the newest angel left in The Path Garden. Once again someone has left a surprise in the garden. Always a treat to find treasures to delight visitors as they stroll through the garden.

Lavender freesia in the front yard. Most are white right now. I saw a red one open in The Path Garden today.

A garden path can be functional and it can be so much more. Functional paths provide safe and efficient routes of travel through your garden. They cut down on tracking mud into the house, and act as anchors to surrounding plants. But garden paths can also be works of art.

We are working to make a new iris bed on the "Path Garden". This spot was damaged some by the renters in the house next to this short wall. So we've decided to add some donated tiles to make it a home for bearded iris.

This is the start of my new walkway.The concrete squares will be staggered. I'd like to plant tiny flowers or something that has runners with some color where the new soil will be. Any suggestions? Izzy Bella (former Keeper's new puppy entry) loves to be outside and into everything.
