The Path to Meditation

This is a path we put in this year through an alley of queen palms that leads to the mediation garden.

The stones took the place of a water-logged, bug-infested, swampy grass area that rarely got any sun. We planted it with ferns and other shade plants to soak up the water that seemed to drain from the higher levels and it became a welcoming path leading to the peaceful meditation garden.

What a lovely space to have at hand. Just knowing it's there must be a comfort. Good modeling! Those stones are..flagstone?

Yes, Kathryn, the stones are a pinkish gold-toned flagstone that we bought a few pallets of and used throughout the gardens in San Juan Capistrano. We had to find a color that went with the previous stone paving around the pool and this worked nicely.
