Old paths

The private gardens of neighbouring Counts and Viscounts at Cascais opened their gates to the public in the 40's becoming the Marechal Carmona Park.

I love photos of paths. The first one in particular is amazing!

Jarart said...

Wonderful paths like that beckon me to follow.

These are just wonderful scenes. I love pathways in gardens and forests. I always want to see what is just around the bend. Those paved paths are hard to resist.

Beautiful photos of a delightful path. Solitude and reflection would be real joys there.

Pathways are always amazing but these are something more. I'd like to follow the cobbled ones, but probably is the other which leads to some surprising place. Great idea, beautiful images.

Mirela said...

Fantastic! I want a garden like that one...

Have a wonderful New Year! :)

Julie said...

I like each of these images, but probably would follow the middle one. When walking pathways what is around you is no more important than what you are walking on.

Jose, I wish you health and happiness for 2010.

Thank you for bringing us here, JM. I feel as if I've had a refreshing momentary break from the cold and snow of New England.
