  1. Immediate question >>> who carefully placed it? But, in any case, and to be serious, love the interior of this smashed article, and especially so the area where the blue and yellow reflections are juxtaposed! A πŸ™‚

    • I don’t know who placed it, but my interpretation of the scene made me think it had been carefully placed! I found it on a sloping plant bed belonging to the local vicar. It had been placed amidst the plants, parallel to the road, which made me think either the vicar or his wife had placed it there (they have a fabulous – creative – garden) or maybe a tidy-minded villager had picked it up off the road and carefully placed it there (we have many villagers who tidy up: litter; stray twigs and branches, and so on). I’m pleased you like the reflections – it was they which attracted me to it πŸ™‚

  2. Great idea, I’ll have to remember not to just dispose of old mirrors in future. Although, a small pack of mirror tiles would make an interesting addition to the flowerbed. πŸ™‚

    • Yes – I was thinking the same! Reminds me of those table tops made out of pieces of glass. It does make me think perhaps the vicar or his wife had placed it there to add beauty to their garden (see my reply to Adrian). Their veg garden is full of mobiles, wind-catchers, and other fun and quirky bits and bobs πŸ™‚

    • Thank you! I was tempted to post a closer view of the mirror which excluded the leaf rosettes, but it was suggested at home that said rosettes added something extra – to which I agreed πŸ™‚
