the mirror on my desk

IMG_4165 DSC_0088 DSC_0079

i always thought it was old fashioned to put a mirror, laid flat, on top of furniture. But man, does it make my flowers twice as stunning. The first image is one of my favorite spring annuals, the African daisy. African daisies come in lots of colors & sizes, but the purple are my favorite. the petals are blue underneath, something i rarely saw once i put them in a vase. flowers on a mirror, i can see the underside of all my flowers…sounds kind of dirty. (Just as gardening should be)

Mirrors have an incredible history. Their value was once far higher then gold & quite deadly to make.
