Return to Snug Harbor Farm

[Tell me that isn’t a perfect title for a book.]

Our drive up to Maine this year was more complicated than usual. It involved Lucy and me meeting John via Bucks Country, PA, at a hotel near the airport in Hartford, CT directly off of his business trip to Albuquerque, and an overnight in Concord, NH. Still, I managed to work our itinerary so John would have a chance to visit one of his favorite nurseries, Snug Harbor Farm near Kennebunkport, ME. Because the car was fairly well packed to the gills, he had to settle for buying non-perishable terracotta, but he enjoyed himself nonetheless. We stopped here four years ago on our way up as well. It was interesting to see how it has changed (only for the better). If you want to see more pictures of it from 2012, click here.

As we finish up our own garden project at home things look promising, but the late planting of perennials in a hot DC summer means there isn’t much to look at until next spring. So nice to be up in cool Maine with so many things blooming.

I think he is going to cross it. I don’t know why.

    The pictures are utterly divine. I’d have a hard time leaving with just a terracotta.
