What's Blooming at Skylands

The beautiful spring plants around my beloved home in Maine are coming to life once again.

As you know, I love Maine. For me, it is a magical place and I always wish I could spend more time there. This year, because of the pandemic, I was not able to carry out my annual task of planting the large ornamental urns and planters that adorn the exterior of my home. Instead, my gardeners, Mike Harding and Wendy Norling, potted up what they could - agaves, succulents, and various other plants that were already there. Cheryl DuLong, who helps me care for Skylands, keeps me updated by sending photographs - this time of the terrace, the lovely views of Seal Harbor, and some of the growing spring blooms.

Enjoy these photos.
