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."


We didn’t have much of a winter on Cape Cod this year, just a few cold nights and two or three snowy days.   I’m not sure we ever had a real hard and deep frost, since I was planting gifted tulip and iris bulbs in early January.    Nothing to complain about, really.

Ah, but now we have all the signs that spring is indeed upon us.   This blue pansy from last year is the first thing in the deck garden to come back to life.   The song of peeper frogs now blends with the distant sound of the ocean waves in the cool night.   And of course, everywhere, the growing season’s early show girls are popping up everywhere to dress the landscape.   I thought you’d wanna see…
