The green and rolling countryside of Worcestershire, England, is home to the cider apple orchards which surround the gardens of Pear Tree Cottage. They enjoy a sunny south westerly aspect with sweeping views across to Martley Hillside, Woodbury and Abberley clock tower. The Teme Valley lies just over the hill and, not far away, is the Herefordshire border. Although our climate is temperate, our seasons are often uncertain and always a challenge to a gardener! This began in 2010 & follows the weekly ups and downs of garden work chronicling both successes and failures but, above all, demonstrates the fun enjoyed by three people who regularly garden in all weathers

Even better.........

Mirror door
Orchard gate.

The mirror door looks even more convincing when the surrounding hedge is in shadow.  The other picture is a gate opposite (which doesn't have a mirror!) on the orchard side of the garden.  There's not that much difference between the two.  I'm just considering whether to attempt to make a path leading up to the mirror door a tad more prominent somehow. The other possibility (which already crossed my mind) would be to make a partially opened 'door'.  That is; an angled panel partially obscuring the mirror which looks like an open door.  

 ......Or,  I just could leave well alone. Who knows?
