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."

A Rainy Day

Yesterday’s sun-drenched photo of a yellow dutch iris was, as the title suggested, wishful thinking on a rainy day.

It was just another day on Cape Cod, really, but rain on a Saturday in June is never entirely welcome, even for all the good it will do, with watering new plants and washing away pine pollen.

For most of the day, it seemed we would only see some light rain and maybe the forecasts had been a smidge drama queen-y, but downpours after dark fixed that way of thinking.

Still, as days go, it wasn’t all bad.  See?
