Its been so lovely here today with sunshine and even heat! After paying a visit to old ANnie in the home I went to Dobbies and bought Nemesia (Wisely Vanilla)and Thyme (Foxley)
I pottered about doing this and that for a while then took some different angle shots of the garden. No I wasnt lying on the ground..just put my phone down low and hoped for the best lol.
SO here are my two newcomers and the other pics :)))))

Lovely set of pics there Pixi, love the one of your pond with the pots. Your garden really is looking great. I bought my self a garden mirror the other week, your mirrors inspired me :-)

Isn`t that Nemesia just beautiful and so are the reflections that your mirror throw thru the garden. Pix I bet that head is one of yours - one you`ve sculpted i mean - nice to see he is keeping is eye on things.

Lovely pics Pixi, its grand to see sunshine even if its in someone else`s garden, your lily leaves in the pond are way in front compared to mine, I can see mine but they haven't reached the surface yet, lack of sunshine I guess...

THansk Sheilar and TT :)
Glad to have inspired you Popedot :) My mirrors in the garden were jsut ones I picked up at charity shops. I do have another one waiting to find a home..it's a triple mirror which I hope I can put back together..was part of a dressing table which blonged to Mum and Dad. I have the bottom part but had cut off the legs and stripped it back to light oak. So not going to use it in the house.
Thannks K..yes it turned out a beautiful sunny and warm day!!!! So nice..cheered me up a lot :)
Yes Stroller its one of my heads lol..it was a sculpture I did when I was at college. Orignally Mother Theresa with the dish cloth thing on her head, that got blown up in the kiln..and as it had that on it I hadnt made ears lol..anyway I painted it black and it had copper highlights at one time. Then the winds blew it off the table and only the head survived, it has nothing to support it so I jsut wedged it down in that corner :))
Ah never mind Lincs I'm sure the sun is on the way down to you! Certainly made me feel better today :)
Paul I got that wee ornament in Asda would you believe! SHe hasnt turned that page yet! ;))))))

We get very cold nights sometimes here, but no frost this late. I always cover iffy things up . I put a big pot upsidedown over tnem lol. And I cover my cactus cold frames with old carpets :D
I hope you won't get any casualties.
