Redolent Tease

....sugar maple wood,
vase of nosegay by beauty,
backdrop weathered grey
—by flp


....all I ever was given upon coming into this plane of my forest,
was a very good imagination,
the ability to hear the wind rustling the leaves,
a working knowledge of the character of wood,
and the ever present opportunity of inspiration that comes from trees….

—-what more could one ask for, i am blessed….

Thank you.

I have been wondering where you have been as it has been awhile since you have posted. Anyway as usual this is simply gorgeous. Your photography and arrangement reflect your artistic talents.

Thanks for the post.

Hello to all;
....and thanks for all the comments!

I really do take the time to read all that’s been said….and, even reading between the lines. Now once one understands the ‘all’s’ of reading between the lines, then one can get down to the art of follow-up.

Reading between the lines is a lot like counting ‘drive links’ on a chain bar…. 50’’ chain bar, and then how many drive links on the chain, gauge .063//pitch .404….?; to get a fit of acceptance where chain and bar work together in tune with the power-head 395xp and a lumber mill….as one, for success in cutting some slabs of wood….hmmm, kind of like being a LumberJock.’s what I call a ’hand plane’.... after all that….got any ‘ax’ men out there….?

Thank you.

Double the pleasure, double the fun….nice to see that you have the bandaids at the ready, since you’ll double the cuts in more ways than one…ha.

Hi Rob;
—-your eyes and how you see into my photos never ceases to amaze me….maybe I should just post pictures and let those eyes do the explaining….LOL.

Actually, maybe I manipulate//adjust the backgrounds of some of these photos to see if any-one is really taking the time to read into the blogs and photos and, then some might say that I’m ‘picking brains for comments’ who’s picking mine….hmmm?

Now having said that, the bandaids here belong to my wife, since this is her shop and those are her tools on the shelfs there. I’m just borrowing the bench space here, ( I’ve all-ready been served notice to hurry up and get my stuff out of here….LOL ) since her bench dosen’t mind some oil and grease in the wood. There was a time way back when….that this was my tool shop, but that was before….

She’s happy with this work space for beekeeping and hive making//repairs or for small wood projects and anything else that comes along, but then that also means I’m the one who bears the responibility for keeping some tools in here for her to use and any-thing else. My problem is that I can often resort to bringing in other things also….like more wood and extra machines….oh yes, if you could only see to the right.

Anyway or anyways….that’s life on the farm and in the surrounded buildings….and once again,

Thank you.

Ha, I like looking into peoples shops and I guess I get my observation skills from all the I Spy Books my kids and I have enjoyed over the years…

So as long as you post pictures I will be “observing”.....
Thanks Frank.
