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."

Stormy Weather

I stopped at First Encounter Beach late this afternoon for a look at the bay. It was mostly my imagination, I’m sure, than any hint of the weekend’s sand sculptures remained behind, after a full day of rain. And then a thunderstorm with some heavy rain blew in off the bay waters, bringing a few degrees more of heat than we’d seen earlier.

I followed the storm across town to Nauset Light Beach and the Atlantic. The rain in the air and the dark clouds created a terrific atmosphere for a few good shots of our Eastham lighthouse.

And despite the still rumbling thunder in the distance, surfers bobbed offshore, awaiting that perfect wave.
