A Touch of England

Pavilions, lawns, rows of annual and perennial flowers planted in semi-formal style might indicate a garden in the English countryside. But surrounding this garden are the Maine woods of Mount Desert Island. The 140 acre paradise near Seal Harbor once belonged to a Boston landscape architect, but the land was eventually donated in trust to the residents of the island for public enjoyment.

  1. A wonder to behold Doug. Must be a popular place for weddings I would think. Verdant, green and bountiful.

  13. this is SUMMER ! it always amazes me what a profusion of colours and smells and shapes northern gardens produce in summer, much more so than southern gardens!
    (it was the same in iceland and now, in stockholm! i guess that's because everything blooms at more or less the same time !)
