Lisa, your front garden is very similar to mine. Intead of having the Knock Outs in the front, I have Rose Carpet. My roses are getting ready to bloom like crazy. I also have a KO in there and may put in two more.

Is there a way you can take more pictures of your garden for me at various angles? Or do you have some pictures on file you can post?

Absolutely. I will upload some. There isn't a ton of blooming going on that you can see right now other than that one section of roses, alyssum, catmint, artemisia and gaura. Lots and lots of green, though!

Sorry it took so long, but I finally posted some pictures for you in the gallery. Long story, but I can't upload pictures from my regular camera, only my cellphone. Not only does it take terrible pictures, but it's about a 10 step process to get each picture up here. Not pretty! Hope the pictures help!

Trailrunner, sorry to miss your question. Actually, the window is an old wavy glass window that just happens to appear very reflective in those pictures. However, I have replaced glass in old windows before, which I expect would be the same process as replacing with mirrors. It's a matter of scraping all of the old putty away with a putty knife, removing glazier's points, replacing and reglazing. If you google "replacing glass old windows" that should give you some good step-by-step guides. Hope that's helpful!
