Lovely paths to be on!!

I'd take any pathway right now, but a mosaic, now that is a path. The deer make foot paths across the field. Does that count?

Great post! We've been working on our backyard, which had "nada" beforehand. We had a winding flagstone pathway put down. English Thyme and a couple other plants were planted among the flagstone. Think about the aroma the thyme will release when stepped on.....cheers, -s
