Good Rockefeller Fences…

One of the things I like best about photography is that it allows one to time travel.  That’s what I’m going to do today.  I’m going back to August 28 of this year, when Greg and I were in Maine visiting our friends, Linda and Brian Friedmann.

Linda and Brian own a camp on a beautiful lake in Maine not too far from Acadia.  We were lucky to get to spend a couple nights with them on our way home from Nova Scotia.  We were also lucky that they happened to have four tickets to the opening of the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Garden in Seal Harbor.  This garden is open to the public only once a week in late July, August and early September, so we were very fortunate to get to go.


I don’t think much needs to be said about the beauty of this place so I will let the photos do the talking.





The walls that surround the garden were spectacular in their own right.  For my purposes here, I’m going to call them fences, because that’s really their function and it allows me to hook up with Theresa’s Good Fences.

Those walls qualify as a fence for me. They are great. Thank you for visiting my Vernal Falls Good Fence. Your comment made me smile. Darwin Award candidates without a doubt.

You always capture the light so beautifully. The image of the door was my absolute favorite but there were a lot of favorites before that one became the final favorite ;)

The "harp" design in the brick wall is so beautiful. Like a portal to a magical garden. Lovely blooms, too!

Oh, my goodness, I would love to walk around there! The paths look magical. Is that moss in the first photo? The green is gorgeous. I like the wall, too.

What a beautiful garden and I love the 'fences'. The first photo is so cool looking. I am wondering why there is a crevice in the ground. Beautiful!
