newly gained appreciation for suiseki

Post  dick benbow on Mon Jan 23, 2012 1:23 am

The pacific NW has recently had it's share of wind and storm and snow and ice storms. We lost power for three days.
I was up all night and day feeding a fire in the fireplace and filling the generator with fuel. Longest sleep was for 3 hrs at one time. I was half an hr in the gas line to get more fuel for the generator as most stations were empty or closed with no electricity.
The generator kept the koi pond pump and filters working and some heat for the bonsai in the green house. The fireplace kept us warm and provided a place to heat meals. this went on for three days. I was exhausted. I checked on my japanese garden that I had designed and built and maintained for 35 years...all the branches broken, nothing but trunks left in the wake. pure heartache!


WHEN I CHECKED THE SUISEKI COLLECTION THEY WERE FINE AND HAD MADE NO DEMANDS ON MY TIME. No

Hmmmmm ( i wonder what that is trying to tell me) Question

Here's what I've learned. Stones don't die, nor do they need constant attention (daily watering, sun, fertilizer, etc.). Branches grow back; good luck trying to regrow a stone Very Happy .

Hello Dick.

A garden can be a reflection of the gardener.

Something happened to your garden
what happens to you?

Hello Chansen.

A stone is growing by lessening.
