Last week we spent a few days in what is called "mid-coast" Maine - a city called Brunswick, about 35 miles north of Portland. It is a college town, and I hope to have time to blog about it some more in the coming weeks.
I live in the Southern Tier of New York, and I was curious to see the differences in early September wildflowers between my home area and that part of Maine. Actually, a lot of the flowers seemed similar. But while goldenrod was still going strong in southern New York last week, it seemed to be a little past peak in Maine. But we did find a nice specimen.
Next week: it will be interesting because my wildflower walk places have been impacted by our flood. So it may be just as much of a surprise to me as it is to you.
