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.

I've often wondered why all the flowers up here in Maine seem to have so much more color and brilliance than anywhere else? My husband, the meteorologist says it has to do with the atmosphere, but I think the flora just loves the cool days and nights and the occasional fog that envelopes them, keeping them nicely hydrated. Same reason I love it here so much. Although some might find the frequent fog annoying (particularly tourists), I find the quiet solitude gives me time for reflection and introspection.
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.
