Idiom: Garden

That word for the idiom is perfect for spring-to-summer time like this, right? But, please beware of the idiom itself:

lead someone up the garden path

“if someone leads you up the garden path, they deceive you or give give you fals information that causes you to waste your time”

See? A Nice idiom doesn’t mean having a nice meaning. I don’t know why it used “garden path”. Is it because some garden has a labyrinth that can make you wasting your time there? Nevermind. Just never ever let someone (or something) leads you up the garden path!

ps: people also say “lead someone down the garden path”, both have the same meaning.
