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."

September Sunshine

As the calendar page turned, the rain clouds slipped off shore and it was a beautiful day.

On plastic pond shores, frogs basked.

The late-seeded cosmos are coming into bloom, like this pale pink one.

And the morning glories, finally begun, continue their daily show.

A reminder of the sliding season, the Autumn Joy sedum began its pale blooming today.

Temperatures were cooler today, in the mid-sixties. But the sunshine was still warm enough for a little sunbathing, as this dragonfly will attest.
