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.

The Goldfinches seem to gobble up the sunflower seeds so fast that it's difficult for me to get any decent photos of them, but I finally got one that only had a few seeds missing. Wish I could have gotten one with the little bandit frantically feeding. Of course, the finches are so yellow, they would just blend in with the sunflower!
On another note, I tend to pick up bits of driftwood along the shore not really knowing what I plan to do with it, but I put it in the garage til I think of something. Yesterday, I came home from work to find this on the garden fence. Hubby had used my piece of driftwood to fashion a sign for me - what a sweetheart he is!
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.
