They are constructed of huge and very heavy Yorkstone slabs - they go nowhere, as far as we can tell.
They lead into the shrubbery then stop.
Huge, old shrubs and trees surround them and block the pathway.
They certainly don't lead through to the other side...
Are they leading up, or are they going down?
Are they hiding something?
Somewhere in the garden there is an old capped well - could this be it?
I doubt we shall ever know, but it is interesting to ponder.
Elsewhere in the garden the tulips are starting to come through - I planted these a few years ago and I still love their crazy colour scheme.
Amongst all my more sedate colour choices of pale pinks and lemons these tulips make an exuberant splash of colour which always makes me smile.
It looks as though someone has splashed red paint all over yellow tulips.
