Oh right, i forgot about the blue "stuff" who couldn't live without Echinops ritro, the globe thistle.

It's always nice to get away once in awhile to get inspiration from other folks. Last week...a little "R&R" in mid-coast Maine. Lobstahs, of course, wild Maine blueberries (very nice in summer pudding) and a delightful stroll through the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens in Boothbay. Just lovely and only open a few short years. Here are some shots of just a few of the highlights. Of particular interest to me was the rhododendron hillside (complete with waterfall) and the bunchberry (Cornus canadensis) growing in the woods. This is one of those public gardens that is SO user friendly. Very accessible for all ages!
