I was curious, where does this secret pathway lead to? A magickal portal to a land of faeries and unicorns? Secret treasures guarded by gnomes? Anything is possible (in my mind anyway). We didn't find any gnomes, but we did find a big lilac bush that had some pretty visitors. Some iridescent friends who were very faery like, also bees...less faery like, but important in the whole grand scheme of the plant human relationship and therefore ignored and left in peace to do their work.
We kept walking and met a cute little puppy who could have singlehandedly been one of the worst guard dogs, ever. He didn't bark and he ran to the fence to greet us so he could jump around and smile at us. I'm pretty sure the only way he could deter strangers was by licking them to death. So a puppy but no unicorn. There was quite a bit of alleyway left, I still had hope.
N No faeries back there either, but there was some crazy spiderwebs and an intense trail of ants. We are respectfully left each other alone. A few houses later the alley ended and we ended up back on the main road a block away from my house. No secret worlds today, but hey there's always tomorrow.
