When we stayed at a B&B in Britain on our honeymoon, I found out that in British English a yard and a garden are two different things when I complemented our host on all the lovely plantings in his back yard, as we looked out the picture window. He looked at me funny and said, well, here a yard is somewhere you have garbage cans and park your scooter, and this is a garden.

So, of course I replied, I love your GARDEN! while thinking, aha, that’s what Scotland YARD means!

Regarding the lovely reflecting GARDEN ornaments above, I need to route myself back down that street on a sunny day with the good camera and get some better shots.

    I love the picture, especially the warm colors in the background and the cooler colors in the foreground. A little bit opposite to how we usually expect colors.
