Gosh, that's gorgeous! We only have things we plant - I guess that's living in a desert for you! (Denver) I've always been entranced with Maine - wanted to go to Baylor. Maybe someday I'll get there....

Happy TT!

Aw beautiful flowers. I would love to garden but alas gardening is the one thing I can't do well. I remember being a child and first learning the name of black eye susans and laughing hysterically lol. Thanks for stopping by my blog :-)

I wish I had all those beautiful flowers growing in my yard, maybe I would be so stressed, but unfortunately my stress just keeps getting worse... but life goes on whether or not i'm stressed...

Ooh, I am jealous! I only have weeds growing in my yard. I'd much rather be surrounded by all that!
