Zyrynology: L'Art de Séduction

...Or How To Conquer An Impregnable Wall 

 

It's all about patience, about moving slowly... inch by inch... no rush...  touching gently, but holding firm... rustling your leaves to put the wall in that sweet trance.... and, oh,  letting it think that it is the wall who's a seducer...

In IvyWorld, VZ, you have the tactics to be King.
vz-nostalgia: There are many ways to learn from nature, Ray. Blessed are those who know how. smile

The impregnable wall being impregnated. The plant feeling up the wall up with the little suckers. Suck the wall. The earth is not moving for the wall because of its good foundation.

I shudder to think of orgasmic walls smile
vz-nostalgia: smile
Louis: I shudder to think of orgasmic walls
VZ: I think you can sleep alright, Louis. Everything is fine with your imagination. smile

This is more plant than wall Vik: you'll have to be very accomplished to seduce this!
vz-nostalgia: smile At times, there is more plant than a wall can handle, Chris. smile
I can also see you let yourself seduced by the wall. You saw it and you had to have it ...in your camera smile
Nature learns us everyday indeed.
vz-nostalgia: smile Nature teaches only those who are willing to learn, Ms. Delia. smile
I wonder what color the blinds are, red, dark green, blue?
vz-nostalgia: smile If you thought about the color of teh shutters, while reading what I wrote, you have some real problem to solve, never mind the shutters, Ms. Chantal. smile
Now this is super Bunuel
vz-nostalgia: Even though some say he was a lunatic with a camera, I wouldn't mind to rub my shoulders with a cinematic surrealism giant, Ms. Jamoula. smile

lol okay you can psychoanalyse me too...I saw the picture..I read the text...and all that came to mind was...VZ's definitely got some planets in scorpio...but the incessant smart assness...hmmm I think that's mostly Saggi, lol
vz-nostalgia: Hahaha Okay, you saw the picture... you read teh text... And only that came to your mind, Ms. Zhen? I see you have some real issues to solve as well. smile
The rustling leaves, definately the seducer,and the seduced if not careful could become invaded and smothered!smile
vz-nostalgia: Looks like you know what you are talking about, Ms. Linda. Must be talking from experience. smile

... and the understanding heart of an old homeowner, many of whom whould deny their love in the name of maintenance.
vz-nostalgia: I see you dig this really deep, Chris. smile
A lot of trimming to control this VZ. Leave it for a season..and it wins...Good picture.
vz-nostalgia: Self-control is always good, Ron. If you don't keep yourself trimmed, others will, and that's not good smile

i like this and how u have framed it, well seen
vz-nostalgia: well, I felt it more than I seen it, kimera. smile
The wall wrapped in adventitious and sucking stems leaves rather than by metaphoric words hopefully sucking in Shutterchancers to cling to words. ...and no issues
vz-nostalgia: I have no issues with that either, Richard. smile
Interesting symmetry, Viktor!
vz-nostalgia: Symmetry is not one my favorite things, Tom, but there are times it is teh only thing that works. smile

Your seductive melody of fine words cannot seduce me to imagine the wall as a "seducer" and a kind of cohabitation- or are the leaves rather the "seducer"? In any case I like observing the plants (red wine leaves? If- where are its marvellous and like a firework burning colours?) climbing up the wall and possessing or adornating the wall like a colourful oriental carpet. And sometimes you might hear a swarm of bees/wasps permanently summing between the leaves along the wall or you might see nesting some birds there- I love those kinds of symbiosis which seem to be less complicated than our ones! I like your photo, esp. the symmetry and the window shutters!
vz-nostalgia: smile
Philine: Your seductive melody of fine words cannot seduce me...
VZ: hahaha. I can assure you, Philine, that wasn't my goal. smile
Philine: ...are the leaves rather the "seducer"?
VZ: I think you got to re-read what I wrote, Philine. Looks like you got yourself confused. smile

I haven't noticed a swarm of bees or wasps. Apparently, my mind was preoccupied with a different kind of thought at the moment. smile
to kill the ivy, cut it off at the base. the rest of the plant will die. no muss.
normally, the way to attack a wall is to starve it. don't allow it food or water.
the mongols dug underneath walls, and entered the castle walls from within.
but conquering is not the same as seducing.
to seduce, you also have to charm.
charming a wall seems unworth the effort, unless the wall charms you too.
if you are unsure, dig a little. and water the ivy.
vz-nostalgia: Geez. What's up with you today, Ms. Sera? One got to be in a pretty agressive mood, to start an essay with the word "to kill"... Must be THAT time of teh month again. smile
Sera: but conquering is not the same as seducing.
VZ: Sure it's not, but it's all semantics. You know well what I meant. smile
excellent framing - love it!
vz-nostalgia: my pleasure, Harry.

Speaking as an architect. Plants, and probably most of nature, in it's most simple move always succeeds in creating a result where most architects fail. How many ugly buildings have we seen and how many ugly plants how we witnessed. Where ever they are, they present a pleasant aesthetic addition.
vz-nostalgia: smile
Mina: How many ugly buildings have we seen and how many ugly plants
VZ: I'd say too many ugly buildings and close to none ugly plants, Mina. smile

Letting vines take over the buildings would be teh cheapest way to beautify them, don't you think? I was watching a BBC documentary on Discovery Channel about what would happen to Earth, if all the people suddenly disappear. Quite amazing stuff. Plants will take over our cities in no time. smile
i'm not so aggressive.
your title, after all, is as much about conquering as it is about seduction
and the ivy- the ivy is black, the shutters are black,
and there is no light
behind the blinds.
you shouldn't be surprised by my reaction.
vz-nostalgia: I always love your musings, Ms. Sera, no matter in what mood you are. smile
