This year marks a transition year for Ruth Axtell. She has a new book coming out with a new publisher. With Her Good Name Ruth returns to the longer books she so enjoys writing. She loves writing about the 19th century, whether it’s Regency or late Victorian England. With Her Good Name she returns to coastal Maine in the 1890s when the wealth came from the logging industry. This is Ruth’s 14th published work. Next spring she’ll return to Regency England with Midnight Masquerade. Gardening, both vegetable and flower, are a source of inspiration in Downeast Maine and something to look forward to during the winter months. Visit Ruth online at

Aren't daisies wonderful! They grow like weeds in my garden, I'm constantly thinning them. Not because I don't love them, but because my gardens are too small for all that want to grow there.

Your gardens are beautiful! Thanks for sharing!

Hi Eileen,
Yes, I love daisies. Do you remember in the movie, You've Got Mail, how Meg Ryan's favorite flowers are daisies?
Thanks for writing.

Your flowers are very lovely! I love You've Got Mail...that was such a sweet part, when Tom Hanks brought Meg Ryan her favorite flowers when she was sick :) Thanks for sharing the pictures!
