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.

Late August Garden
I really enjoy my late August - early September garden. This is the time I can actually sit out amongst my flowers and enjoy them without being "Deeted" to death. In other words "NO BUGS"! The new generation of hummingbirds are flitting about, sometimes dive bombing me if I get too close to their favorite red bee balm. They usually stick around til about the middle of September and then, suddenly, one day they head for the warmer climes of Mexico and the Caribbean. They return most punctually on nearly the same day every year in early May.
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.
