Path less taken

Living in the city, space is at a premium. What you do with that space, can add termendously to your quality of life. The owner of this house obviously wanted to be immersed in the smell and sight of a country garden from the moment they walked out of their house.

The photo may be a little decieving -- It appears the walkway is grown over. That's just because the camera angle obscures it. The walkway is there I assure you -- though it is encroached on a lot by leaning flowers.

While we are all enamoured of lushious, spacious gardens, I think a garden this size does as much if not more.... it keeps us close to nature, even on a short walk to the mailbox.

Nice flowers! I would like all the gardens to be like this here in Australia but we cannot water our flowers because of the draught...
Thanks for your message in my new blog!

We do what we can with what little we are given...
A little bit of paradise on earth!

The gardens not only add to the homeowner's quality of life, but to the lives of everyone who passes by and sees these beautiful flowers. It's a real pick-me-up.
