He stepped back and noticed that all along the edge— or at places that had not eroded, the rose bushes must have been planted as a hedge and barrier to prevent people from getting too close and falling off.

He kept walking straight ahead, wondering if he’d find a way through. As he approached, he noticed an arch of lilac bushes— and strangely, these bushes were still blooming, unheard of for any lilacs…
