The Flowers at Skylands

The weather here in the Northeast has been rather dry and mild for this time of year.

These last few weeks have also been quite mild up at Skylands, my home on Mount Desert Island in Maine. As many of you know, I love Maine - it's truly a magical place and I always wish I could spend more time there. Cheryl Dulong, who works at Skylands, keeps me updated by sending photographs of the property and the surrounding areas from time to time. She recently sent me this selection of late summer-early autumn images of the flowers growing in my cutting garden. This season, there are many dahlias, hollyhocks and delphiniums - so much color and beauty. 

Enjoy these photos from Cheryl.
