One gardener's observations, discoveries and random thoughts whilst simultaneously worshipping and dallying in a Cape Cod garden. "A garden," said Ralph Waldo Emerson, "is like those pernicious machineries which catch a man's coatskirt or his hand, and draw in his arm, his leg and his whole body to irresistable destruction."

Ducks On Ice

It was a cold night here, with temps down to freezing, which more or less continued throughout the day today. Some good things come of cold nights, though. Look, they’re almost touching–it’s a Christmas miracle.

Yes, I got some good duck pictures this morning. Indeed, we had our own ice show… it was fun to watch the ducks alternating between Quacking On Water and cutting their way through the thin coat of ice.

Before long everyone was getting into the act.

We did see some snow flurries this afternoon, which was kind of fun!

Yep, tonight the lights on the Windmill were on! Always looks pretty cool…tho I do remember my first Christmas on the Cape, when the “X Files” movie was newly released–I was so surprised at the big advertisement for the film!
