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.

One of the things I like to do is save seeds and occasionally give them as gifts. I'm always looking for a clever way to package them and yesterday, I spent the day looking for seed packets on line. I found a great site for free downloads with some really cute packets which can be personalized.
Since yesterday was a gloomy, rainy day and I had the day off, I spent the better part of it creating different seed packets for the seeds I have collected. So far, I've made packets for Cosmos, Gloriosa Daisies, Hollyhocks and Dwarf Marigolds. Hmmmm, I see some Christmas Gift ideas popping up here!
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.
