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.

One of my favorite late summer flowers is Cosmos. The soft, seashell colors of pink, fuchsia, lavender and white, surrounded by ferny, grass green foliage add billowy movement to the garden. When most of the garden is glowing in the bright, garish yellow of rudbeckia, goldenrod and heliopsis, the cool colors of the cosmos are serenity to the eyes. The hollyhocks are on their last blooms now and I'm hoping they will reseed prolifically for next year.
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.
