I created a couple of "framed" views for a friend. She has a view of St Michaels Mount and the bay at Penzance
A view between a cherry and a silver birch shows the distant sea and bay. The
white branches below blue sky....nice
A similar view of the Mount allowed by judicial pruning and shaping too
Never been very good at using mirrors in the garden..never quite managed to make them look natural. The best is prob near my greenhouse where I have a solar lamp on a cane and a mirror behind. The reflection echoes around the greenhouse and, at moment, shows up a white camellia there.
Best "reflection" is prob a white dierama near my small pool....the inverted foliage and flowers look quite natural. Need much bigger pool though to achieve what I really want
