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."

When Shadows Fall


“May you always hear, even in your hour of sorrow, the gentle singing of the lark.”


“May you always remember when the shadows fall, you do not walk alone.”

from an Irish blessing.


James A. Lacey, 1968 – 2009.
