The gardens at Pear Tree Cottage sit in a cider apple orchard in the green and rolling countryside of Worcestershire, England. It enjoys a sunny south westerly aspect with sweeping views across to Martley Hillside, Woodbury & 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!

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?
