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 days, it seems that life just overwhelms us. That's when we chuck it all and head for the water and the serenity which we find there. After a leisurely paddle up the coast, we retreat to our favorite island hideaway and spend several hours absorbing the magnificent beauty of nature. We watch loons dive for their dinner and listen to their haunting calls to one another. Eagles soaring overhead are spectacular sights. When sensory overload sets in, we head for home, refreshed and ready for another day - come what 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.
