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. Beautiful pictures as always Greg, I have the same morning glories. It rained here almost every day since June so the gardens are way behind. The flowers are only starting to look nice and the veggies are only ready to pick now.

    It’s been a tough season for gardening, with all the odd weather and other things to distract us. Glad to hear that your flowers are looking good at this end of the season. One or two of my containers might need replanting to keep things looking good into the fall; just one of the reasons why I love “macrofocus” on my camera! ; )

  2. Pretty, as always. Thank you for again bringing some extra color into the day!

    Always a pleasure, Jess!

  3. What a vivid rainbow that greets you on your deck!

    Does Mr. Purrypants interfere with your potted plants? Our cats chewed on live greenery and dug up the dirt.

    Birdie, nothing but the rainbow will do for the Midnight Gardener! ;) The Catsby mostly devils the spider plants inside the Nest, knowing as he does their plans for world conquest. He’s only been out on the deck a time or two, but did need to taste nearly everything out there. He’s particularly fond of those long, frondy leaves…when we get out in the yard, he’s all about the grasses.

  4. Gorgeous pictures. I like the way the cosmos look pleased to be in each others company!

    They really do, don’t they? : )

  5. The hibiscus are lovely. I like the red one that looks like honey suckle?

    The red flowers are from my fuschia plant.
