The road to nowhere

Garden experts and landscapers say that a winding path that seems to vanish at a distance evokes a sense of mystery and arouses one's curiosity to discover what's concealed behind the bend.

Aside from its enigmatic effect, a curved path is also used in small gardens to fool the eye and create an illusion that the garden looks bigger than it actually is.

So where does the path lead to in the picture above? It's suppose to lead to the garden in the making. But there are times when I feel like it only leads to nowhere.
