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."

Sunny Saturday

The pineapple lilies are looking lovely out by the drive way, wel coming visi tors to the garden.

But that welcome comes with a warning that you might see all sorts of outrageous behavior, like the mating ritual going on between these green and red dragonflies! Note how the large grapeleaf substitutes for the heart-shaped bed.

This moth (or butterfly) looked as though it had seen better days as it perched on some white oregano for a bit of lunch.

In the shade of yucca leaves, this orange calendula comes into bloom.

A solo dragonfly perches on this faded foxglove stalk, wondering how he can get some of what the green dragonfly’s enjoying.
