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."

First Tulip


‘Tis late I’m getting home from work this evening/ morning, and I’ve further let myself be delightfully distracted by Patrick’s Beltane visit to Central Park over at Loose Ends. Such beauty!

As a result of all that, this will be a brief entry, as I should get a little sleep if I intend to work the Brewster in Bloom parade into my plan for the day.

But, I have to share with you this particular tulip, the first to survive and bloom in the new garden here. It owes its odd, pointy appearance to having been partially munched before the jalapeno spray did its work to discourage the bunnies and other nibblers. Still, I just love it’s yellow, and the way the raindrops looked on it this/yesterday morning.

Yes, we’ve been all about the rain again the last two days. Nothing particularly torrential or anything, just some nice bouts of slow steady rain…one of the nicest things you can give a garden this time of year. You can be sure the sunflowers are responding already!
