What Is Wrong With These Pictures?

Sometimes what is wrong with a picture is obvious.  Like the rather large dollop of white bird doo-doo on my front lamppost, detracting from this picture of beautiful purple clematis.  Or the distant port-o-potty taking a bit of the patriotic luster off this image of Old Glory.

At other times, it is a little trickier to identify what isn't working in your ever-so-carefully composed garden vignette.  Just what doesn't look quite right when you look through that viewfinder as you take yet ANOTHER picture of your garden and its inhabitants.

So, despite my satisfaction with the new color on the fence and arbor in the potager, something still isn't quite right.

Think about it.  Look at these images and those of yesterday's post.

When I tell you what is bothering me tomorrow, you will say

"Of course!  It is so obvious!"

Still, it might need to be pointed out.  Unlike the bird poop, which was kinda hard to miss.  :)


  1. Hmm... Oh, no! I am terrible at riddles, puzzles and such! I have an engineering and law degree and I am sure I will feel silly tomorrow when you point this out. I didn't even notice the potty or poop! Of course I am on an iPhone though. I like the new stain - it looks edgy! I am partial to the patina of weathered wood in my gardens just because it works well out here in west Texas. Have a great day and can't wait to find out the answer!

  2. The suspense is killing me -- can't wait to see your next post!


Please leave a comment! I love to hear from you!
