Harmony

In visual experiences, harmony(harmony can be defined as a pleasing arrangement of parts) is something that is pleasing to the eye. It engages the viewer and it creates an inner sense of order, a balance in the visual experience. When something is not harmonious, it's either boring or chaotic. At one extreme is a visual experience that is so bland that the viewer is not engaged. The human brain will reject under-stimulating information. At the other extreme is a visual experience that is so overdone, so chaotic that the viewer can't stand to look at it. The human brain rejects what it can not organize, what it can not understand. The visual task requires that we present a logical structure.
This picture has harmony. There is a pleasing arrangement of parts and color hues. It is neither too complex or simple. Harmony is the design ideal we strive for in our gardens.
