here's how awesome i am at posting - some friends from ny visited over the 4th of july and we spent one afternoon at the boothbay botanical gardens. nearly a month later.. pics. it was a gorgeous but oh so hot and humid day. maine summers on the coast are supposed to be 75 and breeze with a slight chill in the shade. not 99 and suffocatingly muggy. but the pictures mostly speak for themselves. we had a lovely 3 hour wander and then ice cream. and showers. and a nap. but i digress. prepare for lots of pics.
