My Summer in Maine 2019, Part One

Whenever I go to Skylands, my home in Seal Harbor, Maine, the days are always filled with lots of great activities - hiking, boating, climbing, antiquing, and touring local gardens are often on my list. I also love spending time with my family and good friends while preparing and sharing some of the best meals of the season.

This summer was especially memorable. I hosted and enjoyed numerous gatherings - large receptions as well as smaller, more casual breakfasts, lunches, and dinners. The flowers from my gardens were abundant and extraordinary, and with the vegetable gardens in Bedford and at Skylands producing so much bounty, our meals were sensational - we all ate and ate and ate so many delicious foods.

This is the first of several blogs I will share featuring some of the highlights of this summer in Maine - enjoy.
