We got a break in the weather yesterday and the sun shone most of the day. This was especially lucky for us, because we had purchased tickets for Open Garden Day, a “rain or shine” event in Northeast Harbor, Maine. The public was “invited” – for $45.00 a head ($40.00 for advance sale tickets) – to tour the grounds of six gorgeous private properties that have remarkable gardens. Below is part of “The Playhouse” property overlooking Somes Sound:


The Day was sponsored by the Garden Club of Mt. Desert for the benefit of various charities and was well worth the price for those who love first class landscaping in spectacular settings. We plan to do a major posting about this Garden Day when we get a chance. (Brooklin, Maine)
