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."

Welcome October!


October is certainly getting off to an autumnal start, with an early low temperature in the mid-forties this morning. It wouldn’t have been such a shock, if I hadn’t left my bedroom windows open from earlier in the weekend, when it was on the warm side.

Still, the orange mums in the whiskey barrel resumed blooming this morning, as if to welcome this new month and their blossoms are most welcome.

The back garden is a riot of white and pale purple asters nearly everywhere.

Not far away, the cosmos are blooming like crazy, as a result of our recent rains.
