Reflections...

Since it is Silver Sunday and Time for Todays Flower..
I wondered how to combine the two parties,
 for todays post..

(click photos to enlarge)

I decided to play with the gardens reflections
in my silver gazing ball...


Some yellow succulents..

And the strap of the camera:-)
I found it really hard to hide me and the camera!

I also realized some flowers are BORING from the backside!


The Fuchsia was my favorite photo,
since the flower in showy from top and bottom.
For a better look click it to enlarge:-)


Sweet Alyssum..


 I set the ball in my Impatiens basket,
I love the roof of the gazebos reflection...


the happy faces of Pansies..
always bright and cheery:-)

I hope everyone is having a fabulous weekend!

Today I am joining...

and...
Beth at Gypsy Fish Journal


Thanks for visiting me today!

Love the shot of sweet alyssum reflecting the gazebo in the background-too fun!

Hi Bella,
this is just so stunning. I love the reflection in your silver gazing ball. You did a good job to photograph this. How did you hide yourself? Thats a big problem when taking photos of silver items. In the middle of evere teapot you can see the person who took the photo. And is almost unpossible to cover with photoshop.
Really amazing nice photos. Thank you.
Gretigns, Johanna
