The images atop this entry featuring aerial views of my urban garden were both taken by Juan V. The first one was taken two weeks ago, on July 6th, and it was featured in a blog post, published on that same day.
Juan took the second image when he came to work with me in my garden yesterday. Some changes were made to my garden, and, I'm wondering if you can spot them (by comparing the two images), dear reader?
Aside from a number of changes re the moving containers of flora around, there are two more "major" changes. One is obvious, and another is somewhat camouflaged by flora that has been growing in my garden for a number of years.
The more obvious change is the addition of a new bird bath. It is a square structure (made of cement) and it can be seen above (as well as to the left) of Juan's photo credit.
The following picture shows my new bird bath as it "stands" (indicated by the number one), in relation to my existing bird baths (that are a hanging variety and indicated by numbers two and three).
The change which is camouflaged by flora can be seen in the next set of pictures, where it is indicated by arrows.
I admit that it's hard to decipher what's new, as my garden is so lush (at least from an aerial perspective)!
Therefore, I'm including a "straight on shot" of the what was added yesterday.
The Creeping Jenny has been pulled out of the box which it shares with my Autumn Clematis, and in that plant's place, Juan V has planted a Verbena bonariensis with a Perovskia atriplicifolia (AKA Russian Sage) on either side of it. In front of the box-style container, Pennisetum 'Fairy Tales' Fountain Grass has been planted (seen at the left in the image), and an onion flower plant has also been potted (seen at the right in the image).
And there you have it, dear reader, another test of your powers of observation! How did you do, dear reader?
