    stacy bass garden I absolutely love this scene. It is like a giant crystal ball surrounded by a peaceful, beautiful garden space. I need some giant crystal balls for my future garden. I'd just make sure to place them somewhere shady/mostly shady, so that the piercing beams of sunshine during the day don't start any fires through the ball, like a giant magnifying glass.
