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 the orange in the rose hips. This may sound silly but it makes me crave herbal tea.

  2. Hydrangeas are a favorite of mine because they do so many things. Handsome even without flowers with lovley leaves & great shapes, then the flowers continue to change color from when the set bud until late autumn. I love them in their green phase.
    On the west coast we have California poppies that will even grow out of sidewalk cracks… & they are beautiful. I have a soft spot for volunteers.
    Here is a link to my Portland Oregon Hydrangeas:

  3. … & wishing you the best with your recovery, Greg.

  4. Just lovely. Bright colors for these days of fading hues.
