Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens – Boothbay, ME

I was in the Boothbay region last week from Tuesday to Thursday while I took a class at CMBG (Native plants in the Maine landscape – with a heavy dose of plant identification).     It was a great class – made me wish I was retired so I had time to do more of this kind of thing.

I am happy to report that I have a much better idea of how to identify some of my plant nemeses (Solidago – I’m looking at you).  Sadly, it involves either collecting plants for later review, or having a field guide and hand lens on me at all times, so I’m not sure I’ll always put it into action, but it’s nice to at least have the tools to do so.

The above are pictures of the formal gardens taken while I wandered around before/during breaks/after class.   (The wildflowers in an earlier post are also during a break – but I specifically went after wildflowers that time.)
