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.

As promised, here is the photo of my daylilly "Ruby Spider". My hand is in the picture to show scale, but this bloom is huge - a full 6+ inches across. Every year I eagerly anticipate Ruby's blooming which is usually right around my birthday, but this year she caught me by surprise by blooming a full two weeks early. Must be the heat!
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.
