Wikipedia has a useful entry on the origins of the notion of the “borrowed view” in garden design:
Borrowed scenery (借景) is the principle of “incorporating background landscape into the composition of a garden” found in traditional East Asian garden design. The term “borrowed scenery” is Chinese in origin. It is known as jièjǐng in Chinese and shakkei in Japanese.
Another way to put it: Wow, those roses have a nice view!
