Botanical Gardens are spectacular this time of year


Get yourself down to Boothbay Harbor now, to enjoy the spectacular flowers in the Botanical Gardens.





Linda and I attended a great Maine authors event recently at the Boothbay Harbor rail museum, then spent the afternoon at the Botanical Gardens, including a wonderful lunch at one of their outside tables surrounded by beauty.




As we strolled along, sitting here and there, I took a ton of photos. Just couldn’t stop.







This is one of our very favorite places in Maine.  And now is the very best time to visit there. Go now!
