Changes noted: Little if anything had changed to the fabric surface of the textile panel in the 12 days since Day 5 was installed in Garden E. However, Day 5 is nailed onto a wooden fence sitting above a stone wall, the spaces between the wood and stone allow the light to seep through. The look of the panel can therefore continually change depending on the strength of the sun and the time of the day. I was able to capture some of these light changes over the late afternoon and early evening hours on this visit.

Another external change is the growing foliage around the panel, especially the honeysuckle on the right-hand side which is starting to cross the panel and bloom. It will be interesting to see whether the plant residue colours the panel at any point.

Sunday 12th September 2021. Approx. 10.30am

Changes noted: Small changes, perhaps the most significant was the pigeon droppings, as documented by the host 6th September. As there are many birds living and frequenting this garden it is surprising that more marks have not appeared – perhaps more will, in time. The honeysuckle flowers, apart from one or two as seen above, have largely died back. Autumnal red berries are now appearing, disappointingly neither have left any coloured stains of marks on the cloth.
