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."

Coast Guard Beach

On the way to work, it occurred to me that I’d not seen the Atlantic in a few weeks, so I made a side-trip to Coast Guard Beach in Eastham. The clouds were building more by then and a gray pallor seemed to fall over our day.

Around the Coast Guard station, lots of these little blue chicory blossoms were holding forth in the lawn. I just love these guys.

Seaside goldenrod lives up to its name.
