A journal documenting the trials and tribulations of gardening on the rocky coast of Downeast Maine. My attempt at keeping in touch with my many friends and loved ones who live all across the nation.

Celebrate July 4th
Happy Independence Day!
Today looks as though Mother Nature may give us a display of her "fireworks" later on in the day as it is warm and muggy this morning.
I've just come back from a walk through the garden and this morning, several of the oriental lillies are blooming, some of the Rudbeckia are beginning to bloom and the Stella d'Oros are in full bloom.
Freddie the Frog seems to have flown the coop as I haven't seen him in a couple of days. Maybe the weasel got hold of him - who knows. Copper Charlie will just have to hold the fort down til Freddie (or Fredrika) returns.
In celebration of our nation's birthday, here is a bouquet I just picked from my garden!
Gardening and knitting fanatic! I love digging in the dirt (what little I have of it!) My zone 5 garden is located on 2 1/2 heavily wooded, rocky acres on the coast of Downeast Maine and is shared by Hubby and our two cats, Spike and Sluggo. When unable to garden, I love to knit, cook, pursue my photograpy, bake and read numerous other blogs.
