The long Memorial Day weekend looked to be a cool, rainy bust but Monday was glorious! As they say in Maine, “If you don’t like the weather, just wait a minute.” Since my daughters were visiting for the weekend, we decided to head to the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens in Boothbay. Can I say that place is a garden-lover’s delight?! Even better, all Maine residents got in for free during the weekend – I love a good deal.
While the tulips and daffodils were just past their bloom, but azaleas were out and there were many buds just waiting to pop when the warmer weather arrives.
I’m looking forward to return trips as the summer passes to see the gardens in all their splendor. I especially hope to go during one of their Fairy Village days. There is nothing better than seeing kids enjoy nature and using their imaginations.
Bring on the summer sunshine and frequent day trips!
