a sparsely-vegetated backyard

G's Street View has preserved this decade-old alleyway view of our home. All of those bushes are now twice as big; the scrawny magnolia now towers over our yard. #mbaug


@richText When was your most recent image captured? Ours is more than 5 years old now and quite outdated given the change in our landscaping.

@pratik Images for our street and the road behind us both seem to be maybe 7 years old; the mapping camera went down the alley in between those 2 roads only once (I guess), hence the one older photo of our back yard. I notice that the nearby larger roads (state roads & highways) have been updated much more recently. I guess they do a sort-of cost-benefit analysis on routes to cover? πŸ€“
