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.

Happy Hour in the Dooryard
On those pleasant late summer afternoons, Hubby and I love to sit out in the yard and enjoy the cool ocean breeze while sipping a cocktail and munching on snacks. Last night, we were nibbling on in the shell peanuts when the local fauna decided to join us in "bar snacks"!
We had several small chipmunks and a couple of little red squirrels begging for nuts. They would take them out of our hands, but really just liked helping themselves from the bowls.
The squirrels were definitely aggressive toward the chipmunks and it was like watching an old Keystone Cops comedy when they would chase each other off into the woods. In the end, they all got their fair share of peanuts and we had the best time watching them and laughing at their antics! Life is sooooo good in the garden.
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.
