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."

Holiday Remnants

Now undecorated, our Christmas tree has retired to a far edge of the garden, where it joins the remains of last year’s tree in offering a sheltering border for homeless birds and other critters, now that the winter seems poised to take a turn toward the cold.

On the way to work today, I found myself behind vehicles from the nearby Community of Jesus, who were packing their large nativity scene away for the year. I never expect to see camels on the roads of Cape Cod.
