|And a redo of that siding stain would harmonize the view from the kitchen bay window quite a bit.|
(note this view is from the oak tree nearby)
I had to harmonize the oak's branches lately, you may remember that high altitude post.
|Then there was this bit of disharmony.|
The ancient outdoor shower faucet combo was tired and done.
The two faucets and one ball valve were all broken or about to go and the shower outlet had long ago been stuffed with plant matter by some critter.
|At the bottom end of the shower setup, ferns had colonized the lowest foot or so of pipe by taking advantage of the slow leak from the ball valve.|
(Actually, I found this quite harmonious, but practical?...no.)
|This fern, in harmony with the green moss that had colonized the drip first, had thrived on the moss-created "soil" that surrounded the lower pipe like a sleeve.|
Okay, this is pretty FS to me.
|To balance the competing harmonies of a need for a working faucet at this location with the clever harmonizing by the moss and fern, I decided to keep the pipe, moss, fern complex intact after I cut it from the undergound pipes.|
I then carried it out to the goldfish pond where the lime rock boulders lay around harmonizing with the pond.
I tucked the pipe,fern, moss unit under the shade of a sago palm there and wished it luck.
|Where the ferny shower unit was ... harmony to come.|
These pre-Thanksgiving days off have allowed me to knock off, or at least work on a zillion disharmonious little jobs that were not urgent, but needed.
Some actually are not "needed", not in the usual sense anyway.
I give you the Pollinator Bee House for example.
All I had to do to it yesterday was start stuffing its spaces with habitat material for our native bees and wasps who work harmoniously with my blueberry blossoms to ensure a good crop.
I THOUGHT I was going to just put log chunks in one section and bamboo in another, but then this mild Feng Shui infection flared up and the whole project took twice as long.
|Back in the shop, I furiously cut more 6 inch sections of bamboo using a precisely and yet harmoniously placed stop block to guarantee length harmony among the bamboo pieces.|
My fever was reaching its peak now.
|I think I'm over it now ... wait, is that log in the right place?|
Feng Shui, Y'all.
