Eclectic garden paths completed

Remember my UGLY non-existent
path I showed you before?
Well I FINALLY finished today,
sure I still have some minor pick up
jobs here and there but

my eclectic garden path is

This is the path from the
porch door.

I have the dry, cut and cracked
hands to prove that I layed
down every single edging.
btw...this edging was FREE
from Craigslist.

A very simple path, nothing fancy here.
The stepping stones are different sizes and

I'd like to find a BIG bird bath and place it right between
the butterfly bush and lantana. The cute blue
wooden potty chair was found at a thrift store
while out looking for garden junk.

I also think I am going to mosaic these
four circular pavers...

I had to remove some edging by the tub because
I forgot that the lawn mower
comes out every weekend to
do it's job.

The view from the shed..
now the path blends in well with my

I'd like to have a whimsical look to it
but not sure how to go about it.
Any ideas?

As you can see the whole yard needs care but
I'm okay with my paths.

The pond liner is another project in the
waiting..just have to figure how
to start.

There was some extra edging
so I will add it to
another part of the garden.

I better get to it before
the Florida heat, humidity and mosquito's get

I am also linking up to Linda's Nifty
Thrifty Tuesday...let's go see all
the eye candy.

You did a nice job and that's a lot of hard work too. It's better to get all that stuff done while we can, because summer is already here and will only get worse.

Wow, you did it all by your lonesome. Those stones got to be heavy. Anyhoo, you did a great job on your path. I've always loved the look you get from using stepping stones. I'm visiting from SSS, and its nice to meet you.
Hope your day is great.
