A Garden in Perkins Cove, Maine

I recently took a trip to Ogunquit, Maine, and realized that collectively, this little seacoast town might have the best gardens I’ve ever seen! In particular, there is one garden tucked between two restaurants in Perkins Cove that is so breathtaking, I had to take some photos to show you all. Even the windowboxes are fabulous! I hope you enjoy as much as I did.

Pink blooms, depending on the shade, can create an endless variety of statements in your garden.

This spring, I want to make the garden my own and try as many different varieties of plants as possible.

There’s Still Time to Plant Perennials

You’ve planted your tomatoes and peppers and set out your petunias and geraniums. Whew! If you’re like most gardeners, you rush to do all your planting in spring, and then switch gears to “maintenance mode.” Yes, spring is the time to plant most vegetables and annual flowers, but when it comes to planting perennials you [...]
