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.

The Canna I planted among the Eupatorium is blooming! Every fall, I dig up the rhizomes, throw them into a paper bag and put them in the unheated part of the basement. Along about February, I pot them back up and in June, put them outside. This is the first of the blooms. The other ones are in pots on the deck, but they have yet to show a blossom.
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.
