i am in maine now and i always love walking around and seeing what is in bloom here…the raspberries are barely out, but all of the wild roses are in bloom and the air is fragrant! i also love that things like lady’s mantle thrive here, as the heat of our southern summers tends to overwhelm them. even in areas where garden beds are tended here, forest and fields always surround the edges, which makes foraging for flowers endless fun. a mix of groomed and wild comes together, in a vase.
