I love the marine layer

The garden appears to have survived my absence despite a somewhat clueless housesitter, although the Leucospermum is not too happy about it. We survived ungodly weather, a hornworm holocaust, more daylilies than I care to recall, and a lovely tour of the Arnold Arboretum, and we photographed none of it. I rushed around with a flashlight as soon as we got back, making sure everything was ok. Few developments, aside from wilting, and a single unopened lily bud. The first flowers have appeared on the Zauschneria/Epilobium. I'll try photography again soon.

aka badthings ... I had to smile at this post, even though it really could have been a post about a tragedy. We go through the same thing everytime my husband and I leave on one of our trips. Some people go away on vacation and worry about their children left with a babysitter. Our kids are all grown.

I worry about the garden. :-D

You made my day today -- I needed a laugh and when I read your "about me" page, particularly this line:
He would also like the raccoon to stop shitting on his lilies. I snorted -- that sip of coffee almost went down the wrong way. Heheh.

Anyway, I love your garden blog. Your photos, the reviews you post -- your garden journal (those tomatoes you grew this year sound fantastic I need to try those next year...) found you through BPOTD. thanks for some great postings. I'll be back to read more.

Thanks Maureen. The raccoon did stop shitting on the lilies -- although, to be fair, I think the culprit may have been one of our hateful neighborhood cats on a particularly bad diet.
