Through the Garden Mirror

DSC_0634

You’ve got to love it when your two favourite garden adornments go on sale – buy one get one free! Oh how to decide? Uh, duh! This cathedral window shaped mirror has haunted me for well over a year now – definitely a gorgeous addition but always just the other side of justification. The perfect accent feature for the rare and unusual border, helping to add a sense of depth to a rather straight, narrow space!

DSC_0629  DSC_0631 This handsome glazed water bowl was my freebie! I love the colours, and its size is perfect for collecting rainwater. It could easily house a few water plants should the idea present itself in coming years. I must remember to bring both of these striking additions inside for the winter months!

What great finds! Love the way the mirror reflects light back into the garden. And the water bowl is to be coveted through the blogsphere.

That is a terrific mirror. It reminds me of the old gothic churches of Normandy.
