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."

The rain of the previous few days had heralded a return of the humidity we hadn’t missed over the weekend, and the second half of today brought sunshine and heat to match. Whew…steamy out there this evening.

The evening’s sunshine encouraged a more thorough prowl of the garden area, where I discovered that the newly-blooming gladiolas were beginning to flop…always a great excuse to cut some flowers to bring inside.

Some of those autumnal rudbeckia found their way into the arrangement, as well as some turk’s cap lilies.
