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.

Some folks consider this job tedious and onerous, albeit very necessary if one wants to have a tidy garden. Call me crazy, but I really like deadheading plants! It gives me lots of time to reflect on things that may be on my mind and, while talking to myself and the plants, I can enjoy the company of the finches chirping in the trees overhead and the hummingbirds flitting by close enough to see the brilliant luminescense of their tiny feathers. Life is good in 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.
