      Down the Garden Path. A well-done path is a wonderful addition to the garden or landscape. A path leads you into and through the garden. It becomes part of the garden. The lines of a path anchor the plants in the garden and remain ornamental even when the garden is dormant. Nothing is more effective at directing your attention to a focal point.   Provided to YouTube by Sony Music Entertainment Down the Garden Path Something For Kate The Murmur Years - The Best of Something For Kate - ℗ SONY BMG MUSIC ENTERTAINMENT.

Don't worry if some of these sentences seem like nonsense at first (you have been garden pathed); they will be explained below. The prime number few.   Ammer, Christine. Lead down the garden path.
