Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens

Yesterday, I grabbed my camera and headed down to the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens in Boothbay.  If you’ve never been, it is definitely worth a visit and makes a wonderful daytrip from the inn.  The gardens are comprised of 128 acres with 3,600 feet of tidal shore frontage in Boothbay.  They opened their doors in 2007 although planning, plantings and building had begun 16 years earlier!

Garden of the Five Senses

The gardens are comprised of several different sections with the two newest being The Garden of the Five Senses (above) and The Children’s Garden.  The entire property is really quite magnificent.

My goal this year was to get to the gardens to see the rhododendrons in bloom.  While I was a bit late in the season, there were still many varieties in bloom.
