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. Hey, if we’re considering mold to be a garden crop, then I have something to add! But I won’t post a photo. “Gardens” like that shouldn’t be growing in one’s shower. :(

    How is it that even your deck mold looks good? The marigolds are looking pretty chipper for this late in the season. Is that a recent Morning Glory? Hearty bunch, aren’t they?

    Lookin’ good, Greg.

    Hey, that’s not a shot from anyone’s outdoor shower. Just the neighbor’s shingles. And it’s called MOSS. ; )

    The annuals are hanging on so far, as we’ve thus managed to avoid a frost. But it may be in our short term forecast, as nightly temps are headed quickly down in that direction. Meanwhile, the posey parade continues.

  2. Have to do some boring necessary stuff right now, but what a lovely diversion.

  3. Gorgeous choice of flowers as always. You have a green thumb when it comes to the shutter as well.

  4. Cold, wet, gray autumn day here. This post is just what I need.
