Maine is the home of intensely wonderful gardens that last only a few short months in the summer. They draw those who love the vibrancy of the colors, the cleansing of the air and light, and the truly remarkable story of the natural environment around us. These two gardens are created from the vision of a couple who love all those connections, and who get great joy from sharing them with others. This book is the photographic story of one summer, from the birth of the flowers to the cycle of the monarch butterflies. We hope it inspires you as it has inspired us.
