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.

I tend to gather my deck pots around our fountain and this year they are looking very lush. Last year the morning glories were pathetic, so this year, despite reading that one should not over fertilize them at the expense of flowers, I did just that. They have climbed the trellis very nicely and we are just beginning to get a few blooms. They are "Grandpa Ott's" - a beautiful heirloom variety in deep purple. The rest of the deck plantings are benefiting from the additional feedings, as well.
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.
