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."

  1. Love your caption for this post. My daylilies have been looking similar to yours where the ends of the petals seem frayed. Have you seen this before? I used to think that maybe the daylily was getting a bit old as far as how long it had been in bloom. I love all the color variation you have shown us.

    Steven, I think that’s the style of the daylily flower: the inner three petals are mildly ruffled at the edges, while the outer three petals are smoother-edged. Plus, remember, they only bloom for a single afternoon!

  2. Hydrangea! It is one of my favorite flowers/shrubs.

    Your pinks are yellow. :)

    My “pinks are yellow”…? Is that code for something?
