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.

Hot, Hot, Hot!
It's going to be almost 90 degrees today with a lot of humidity! Those Southerners just can't seem to keep that stuff to themselves! Oh well, we will manage to keep cool despite not having any gasp! Air Conditioning!!!! Wouldn't have it at any cost anyway since we only have one or two days a year where it "might" be nice. We have all the windows open and a nice sea breeze is coming through the house. I doubt if we will suffer much. My garden, however, is looking bit ragged as we are somewhat inbetween seasons with the late spring garden gone by and the late summer garden still trying to burst forth. The bee balm and rudbeckia are holding up nicely to the heat and I'm sure that the copious amounts of rain we've had this year is helping nicely. Our forecast is for possible thunderstorms again this afternoon. Sigh, I guess the daisies and annabelle hydrangeas will never get the chance to stand up tall again.
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.
