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.

Wierd Weather Today
Today started out with cloudy skies and a bit of rain. I had planned on mowing the lawn, but 'twas not to be. The rain gave way to high winds and the cove actually had white caps - something we seldom see around here.Good thing we went kayaking yesterday!
The sun finally came out this afternoon and I did manage to repot a hanging basket and stake the Shasta Daisies, which look as though they might bloom any moment now. The Stella d'Oro day lillies are blooming and my Angelica is, after three long years, also in flower.
Expecting severe thunderstorms this evening. Will hope for the best for 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.
