I wonder how long it takes for new cobblestones like this to weather like the old ones. The pattern in your photo is great.

Beautiful. I remember so many beautiful streets of cobblestones in Europe. Most of them in in the USA have been removed or covered by blacktop.

These are lovely! I love cobblestones and pavers. I wish I had had more time to find some in Toronto before I left. BUt I am enjoying browsing the examples in other cities. Yours are especially nice. :)
