I find it very satisfying to take something that is a chaotic mess and turning it into something beautiful, functional or just finished — like a basket of laundry or a jigsaw puzzle!
In early spring I posted a few times about my project to make the Willow tree remnant (aka stump) into a pleasing garden.
As I worked on the project, pulling resources from my other gardens and spending time in the space, a vision started to take shape.
Always ready to soak in the sun and help me out, Jello attended my efforts!
Early morning and afternoon sunlight shines into this little nook, making it a nice place for coffee or a glass of wine!
To me, order is in the aesthetic that meets my eye. If something I’m working on isn’t visually pleasing, it nags at me until I figure out a solution!
It’s really beautiful 🙂
Thank you, Patricia!
I love it, and the idea of creating order out of chaos. Ten days after moving into our new Texas Hill Country home, that’s what I’m doing. We have an even odder stump–it’s really yard art–that I’d like to do something with.
So much more friendly than grinding it into dust! Hope your move is going smoothly — so hard — yet also exciting!
Your nook is lovely 🙂
Thank you, Janice. Your poetry is an inspiration!
That’s lovely to know :))
An excellent transformation (and I like the Chaos to Order graphic)!
Thank you — high praise from an accomplished gardener! I’ve had that graphic for years and every once in a while it helps me to remember — such changes are a process that take time!
I could sit there with a glass of wine myself. Looks very peaceful. Oh! I think I see my empty glass in the distance. Ha ha! ❤
We could always fill it up again!!
