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."

A Garden Floods

Ah, there’s nothing like winter to test a gardener’s faith.

While so much of New England was shoveling out from some serious snowfall, here on the Cape, we saw a day of heavy rains, with only the lightest of snow at the start and finish of the day.

However, as you can see, the rain all seemed to collect in the new garden beds. I’ll have to raise these up as soon as spring allows, but for now, I can only hope the water all drains off (there’s a lot of sand down deep) before we get another heavy freeze.
