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."

Rainy Daze


Comments on: "Rainy Daze" (3)

  1. if we make it to midnight without rain, it’ll be the first 24 hour period that it hasn’t rained here in 2 and a half weeks. we’re somewhat water logged. green. but water logged.

    I hope some golden sunshine finds you soon, to help all your plants put that water to good use. Our day and a half of rain this week was most welcome, since we’d been having some awfully delightful (but dry) days lately. With all the planting I’d done last weekend, the extra showers saved me watering during the week’s busy middle!

  2. Beautiful. I’ve always loved how water beads on nasturtium leaves, whether from rain or the morning dew.

    The San Diego rainfall monitor has just adjusted the May 2010 rainfall total upwards to .01 inch for the month, and June is zero so far. Why do people pay the big bucks to live in a near-desert? Places like yours make so much better sense.

    Oh, I think you tailor your garden nicely to your local conditions, but of course, so many others demand their lush green oasiseses at the desert’s edge. You’ve got me wondering what our actual rainfall totes have been recently, so I’ll check that out and report back.

  3. What is it about a few droplets of water that makes flowers and petals and leaves look even more heavenly? They become visual poetry.
