I consider myself very fortunate living in an area where there is such great walking routes. No matter which direction I choose to wander, there will always be something new or inspiring or whimsical to admire and smile over.
A fairy door at the base of an old oak tree and a banjo birdhouse is not a normal sight to see.
My walking route always includes gardens–after all, Victoria is known as the “City of Gardens.” Not only are there colorful and spectacular blooms but often unique or unexpected “gems” often showcase the flowers. One of my favourites was the unexpected three little dwarfs who cheerfully “claim” to hear nothing, say nothing and see nothing. . .
I enjoy viewing garden ornaments that are striking. A number of garden enthusiasts appreciate the mysteries of the Orient as evidenced below.
My walks may start with a beckoning road that promises an escape from an ordinary experience–at the very least, an adventure that may end with a pleasant encounter of some kind. . . .
It may involve steps to get up a steep hill—with the added bonus of seeing at the top, a house with a domed tower room. . . .
And further along, there is an artist who made her wall very special with her extra pottery plates.
And always, on every corner, in every yard—even in a crevice on a stone wall, something blooms and thrives.
I promised to myself, after a walk that had so many attractions, there had to be a reward at the end—and thanks to my California friend, Eva, that’s planting some very special seeds. . . . .
I hope you all have fun walks too—Take good care; Stay well and always Be Safe.
