June is busting out all over

lovely lupine

The Maine setting of the play Carousel inspired Rodgers & Hammerstein's classic song (titled above) and it remains the perfect description for these late Spring days. Afternoon provides a lovely light for viewing and strolling about the gardens here at Birchwood Motel in Camden, Maine. 

Can you smell the lilac? Guests adore the lightly scented breeze calling to them down the front porch. Please enjoy (indulge me further) a few images from the Birchwood Motel gardens:

a chorus of iris

capturing the first pristine rose bloom before 
the japanese beetles arrive to make their marks

awaiting emergence of herb seeds
herbs for peace? peace mussel? — inspired by 
my creative friend, Jen C. 

even pup takes time to smell the spring flowers
indian paint brush — a wildflower fave 

poppies! poppies will make them sleep...

thyme in bloom, happy bees, lovely stone paths
laid by innkeeper/husband/stone mason Eric!

Gardens are so lovely. Always changing, always something new to see.
