Here's a conundrum for you.
The mirror is in a "room", which is a garden exhibit, fully open to the elements, and fully furnished. The walls are painted like sky, but that's the real sky reflected in the mirror. V2 gives a little more context, showing the overmantel shelf.
There are plants growing out of everything, including the tulip bed, which I have shown in V3, and I love the clock hanging above the bedhead. Now, this is a true flower bed!
This was found at Butterfly World in St. Albans, Hertfordshire, which is fairly new and still undergoing development. As part of Phase 1 of the project, in 2008 Butterfly World hosted a designer gardens exhibition called Future Gardens which involved inviting talented garden designers from around the world to contribute thought-provoking designs for individual gardens which fit into the segments of a caterpillar. Each of the 12 gardens makes a unique design statement.

Very well captured, Pamela. There was a similar room at the Floriade this year with plants growing out of a cooker, pans, plates, cups etc. Quite surreal but I couldn't get an angle like you've got here.

Clever. At first I thought you had overlaid another image into the circle to make it look like a mirror.
Of three excellent shots, the close crop and mystery of V1 wins the day for me, Pamela.

DIANE: I'm not in the shot because it was taken from an angle. I was, however, less successful with the reflective globes in another of their gardens.
DAVE & PHILIP: I think "surreal" is an appropriate word.

Interesting and well seen image, Pamela. I quite like it... Strangely.. I'm a bit 'confused'.. not as tidy as your image. I quite like to see more of the lamp.. actually I like the leaves on the lamp on V2... Personally, if I could do the clone work, I perhaps would work on V2,keep the lamp ,get rid of the 'little ones' and "free transform" it bit to make the mirror round....
