This blog is about gardening and nature, two subjects that are inherently intertwined. I live outside of Boston (on the edge of an urban area) and near the ocean (on the edge of the land) and my property abuts a city owned natural area (on the edge of nature) what better name?

My garden is full of promises right now.
Promises of blooms next month.
See how big my Aster 'October Skies' has gotten? It's nearly 6 feet tall!
Here's my Autumn Clematis - I planted this earlier this year. I'm expecting that this will eventually cover the side of the deck.
Promises of blooms next spring.
The buds on two types of Pieris.
Promises of blooms winter color and winter bird food.
My hollies have red berries, green (unripe) berries and blooms!
And promises of more, still needed, rain.
Those clouds are from Earl. We might get a sprinkling or we might get soaked. I'm hoping for a soaking!
