Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens—A Longer View

Yesterday’s post featured close-ups of the many delights at the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens. Today I’ll  give a longer view of this lovely place. Eliza and I arrived at about 11:00 a.m. and didn’t leave until about 4:30 p.m. As I have mentioned previously, we were the perfect companions for this outing. I had my wee wonder of a camera, and Eliza had her larger Canon.

Here’s how it went. We’d take a few steps, stop, snap some pictures, and repeat. For someone not as enthused about taking pictures as we were, it would have been excruciatingly slow. But the pace was just right for the two of us.

As I was going through my pictures this morning, I realized that a third post was in order to highlight the wonderful sculptures in this garden. The sculptures are so fine and so integral to the look and feel of the place that they deserve their own space on this blog.

But for today, here is a broader sweep of flowers, sky, water, and stone.

  1. How lovely!! Quite a lot different from when we went there with Memere. Can’t wait to go see it when I come up! 🙂

  2. Beautiful images, Laurie. You really did a great job capturing the feel of the place. My images are still in the camera… I wonder if they will ever make it to a post! ;-D

    1. Thanks, Eliza! One more post to go, and it’s back to “Maya and the Book of Everything.” Hope you find the time to share your photos. On one blog I follow, the writer waits until winter to share his gardening treks. Brightens up the short days. 🙂

      1. No hurry! But I am certainly looking forward to seeing some of your pictures whenever you feel ready.

  3. I haven’t been there yet, but seeing these is a good inducement to make a visit soon. How’s that leave of absence from blogging going? Ha.

    1. Thanks, Jason. I must blushingly admit I do not know. I was too busy taking pictures to look at the signs.
