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.

It was a dark, stormy night!
Wow! Thunderstorms like we seldom see here on the coast! Usually, we say "did you just hear something"?, as the storm passes overhead, but last night was a doozy and we had almost one inch of rain in a very short time. Good thing too, as I was going to have to drag the hose around to water the garden today. Hooray! Leaves more time for a possible kayak paddle later on this morning, seas permitting. The garden blooms more beautifully by the day and this last round of rain will help the astilbe, ligularia and Joe Pye weed get a good start on their blooms. The lillies continue their concert of color around the 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.
