I'm a messy gardener. Don't let the lovely macros I sometimes deliver to my photo blog fool you. Over-all, my garden is low-budget, low-maintenance and there are times when I talk to the weeds. :-)

A journal of our humble New England garden. Dedicated to W.P., with love.

Roaming the Forest Floor

Our backyard was created to look like the Maine woods. There are a ton of pines surrounding the property and a couple of oak trees that shed so many acorns, it's hard to go barefoot. Occasionally I get pelted on the head by a fast-flying acorn! In places, the grass has turned to moss and the feel is really that of being in the woods.

Here a few photos taken the other day of the ground cover and whatever else I come upon as compose this post!

I'm not sure what this bush is called but it starts turning red in early Autumn

 In the garden, the sunflowers are fading...

but a couple of roses are still blooming lovely.

Thanks for viewing!
