North Berwick is home to a nicely maintained (by volunteers) series of trails along the Neoutaquet River. It’s a peaceful spot, open to the public year round. It’s a short walk from the house, so I ventured out this last weekend.
I think this bee was molting, so I left it to do its thing.
I’m still slowly discovering this area’s treasures, of which I suspect there are many. Despite having lived just over the state line in New Hampshire for four years, I never really thought much of Dover as a permanent home. It’s a fine little city, but I never really grew attached to it, or felt invested in the community. I feel a little different here, a little more firmly rooted.
On Wednesday we took a drive to Booth Bay Harbor to visit the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens with Tj’s parents. It was a beautiful day, sunny and seventy, with an occasional (much appreciated) coastal breeze. I don’t think we could have asked for a better day. We took a few photos, and I came back with a fairly impressive plant wishlist, and only a very small sunburn.
Some of these shots are Tj’s.
I fell in love with these “Amethyst Mist” Coral Bells.
Thanks for stopping by. My name is Naomi, and this space is made of girldust. This blog is a picture of my comfortably scattered life on the coast of Maine. I'm trying to be a slightly better version of myself every day. I like old houses, reading, the ocean, ghost stories, and museums. You can learn a little bit more about me here.
