Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens

Our first visit to the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens at Boothbay was most certainly worth the effort.  The location is about an hour north of Portland, ME, and three hours north of Boston, MA.

This isn’t an article/text blog so hopefully I’m just going to let my    photographs speak for themselves:

And last but not least some wonderful ferns

    Are the ferns photographed in Boothbay Ostrich Ferns (Matteuccia struthiopteris)? That’s what they look like to me.
    I admire your photographic and compositional skill greatly.

      Firstly, thank you for your kind comments, Dave.

      I’m afraid I don’t yet know the answer to your question about the ferns, though. When I photograph plants at venues where they are labeled, I always take a shot of the actual label to make sure I get my facts right, later. But the ferns – in 3 or 4 locations around the gardens – weren’t labeled anywhere.
