From spring until autumn, you don’t have to go far to see a beautiful Maine garden. Not only does it seem that every house is a showcase for blooming things, open fields and road sides are brightly colored, mostly with blossoming weeds!
In addition to private gardens, there are some outstanding ones open to the public, and over the next couple of days I invite you to visit. First stop is a personal favorite, Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens near Boothbay. It is a place of wonder.
Throughout the gardens, sometimes in surprising places, are works of art,
and everywhere water features to calm the soul.
What makes the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens so special is that with its combination of formal gardens, forested areas, antique rock walls and a stretch of waterfront, it captures the essence of Maine. When you are traveling the coast, these gardens are not to be missed.
