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.

July Garden Update
With all the rain and fog we've had recently, the garden is really looking lush these days. That and the weeds are running rampant! The flowers are brilliant this time of year and I so enjoy just sitting in the yard and enjoying them.
I took photos of some of the flowers today, but the bright sunlight just faded them out. Nonetheless, here is a pictorial update of some parts of the garden:
The daisies are in full bloom and this little fella is enjoying every minute.
The lilies made it through the onslaught of those nasty red beetles. Seems like I was out there every other day spraying them with insecticidal soap. Oh, but they are so worth the effort!
The Annabelle hydrangea is just about to pop. The Purple Palace Heuchera is almost lost beneath it.
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.
