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."

Valentine’s Day

This brilliantly-colored male cardinal felt like a Valentine from Mother Nature on this grey New England morning. He was foraging for seed outside the kitchen window and despite jostling by our kitty, I managed this decent shot of him.

I’m fond of this tree and its silhouette, which is my landmark to turn onto our new street. Despite the cold, I wanted to stop and share it with you all.

Here’s the Love Bandit Bear, who came to our house looking for me today, from the Vermont Teddy Bear workshop.

Isn’t he the cutest thing?! The “local agent” who arranged for the Bandit to find me is, too!! (Thanks, Owen–I love you!)
