Hannah’s pre-college punch list included the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens. When Wednesday’s weather looked beautiful, she talked me into playing hookey with her and make the three-hour trip to Boothbay.

The weather was picture perfect for exploring.  Neither of us is particularly knowledgeable about flowers, but we appreciate beauty and the gardens were like eye candy. At every turn there was something of interest – an unexpected sculpture, a pop of color, or a bit of whimsy; it all blends together so effortlessly.

A mother-daughter adventure to create a few more wonderful memories before she heads off to shcool in just over a week.
