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."

Early Morning

An early morning visit to the back garden revealed a third Casa Blanca blossom, and the whole area scented with the sweet perfume of the earlier blooms. Mmmmm.

On the quiet side back there this morning. A bunny seemed surprised to see me as he stopped and tried to blend in. A few birds twittered at a distance, but no recognizable voices.

Already it was getting hot again, and so I gave everything a good watering to cope better with the hot sun.

The white Rose of Sharon bush has joined the show this morning.

And although it wasn’t quite early enough for sunrise, I still got to see the sun low in the sky as I headed for work.
