Alex and I went up to the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens yesterday and it was a very, very good visit. The Lady Slippers orchids were out. The tulips were still looking good and the rhododendron were looking sharp. There was an art exhibit on display and around the grounds were the most wonderful metal rebar sculptures of animals by Wendy Klemperer. I took a bunch of snaps and click here to view some of them - Boothbay Botanical. We went into Boothbay Harbor and visited the Joy to the Wind gallery across the footbridge. We had a nice chat with Lynne Seitzer and spent some time eyeing the many works on display there.
