All the leaves are brown
and the sky is grey
on such a winter's day :)

Garden Conservancy has posted a tentative listing for open days 09 that includes York and Hancock County. Pretty convenient if the dates pan out.
I of course would love to see any fellow Idyllers gardens
'in person' that are situated within a reasonable distance!
I'm excited !

Another option re: Chelones post over on Saucys 'typo' thread,:-) to make Boothbay area a 'second stop', i.e. get a room there and see a couple other gardens in the area -assuming there are others to be seen of course....
Luckily I had my photos of the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens on my internal hard drive so I could actually view and modify them unlike my external HD where I download my garden photos now (which is a very slow connection).
Anyway, I posted some pictures on my Picturetrail site. The BG is relatively new, but we visited in September 2007 so the plantings will be 2 years older by this coming summer. I was impressed by the stonework and the amount of sculpture in the garden and on the walking trails through the woods. Nice cafÃ© also. Enjoy!

Monique, I could deal with that quite easily!!!
That definitely has a 'down east' feel to it! I love the stone rose and that braided stone bit. Thanks for posting the link to those pictures.
Monique, thanks for the great pictures (esp. Les baying along with the crowd, lol). I've seen a few spots about the botanical gardens on local news programs and what I've seen is really terrific.
I think it would be a fun place to visit and well worth the "drive time" required.
That botanic gahden is lovely -- it would be intriguing to see what it looks like 2 years later. Thanks for taking the time to post those photos, Monique, to wet our whistle, as tho we needed any encouragement, LOL..... I like the pic of the Zen master doing his thing among the larches(?)...
