All the leaves are brown
and the sky is grey
Idyllunion dreaming
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....

RE: IU VI - For Year 2009!

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 caf also. Enjoy!

Monique, I could deal with that quite easily!!!

RE: IU VI - For Year 2009!

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.

RE: IU VI - For Year 2009!

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(?)...
