Coastal Maine Botanical Garden – Boothbay, Maine

One of my favorite places to visit is the new Coastal Maine Botanical Garden which opened in June 2007.

One of the most beautiful areas of the garden is the Shoreland Trail with views of the Back River.

Purple monkshood, aconitum, were in full bloom, overlooking the peaceful Slater Forest Pond.

Meandering through the woods and over the wooden foot bridge, you discover the Fern Garden and in the spring, can see lots of Lady Slippers.

There‘s lots for children to do
They can build a fairy castle in the woods.

I definitely have to come back next spring and see the Rhododendron Garden in bloom. It is located on a hillside, overlooking a pond and waterfall.
