Pineland Farms, New Gloucester, Maine

Yesterday's impromptu road trip was to Pineland Farms in New Gloucester. They have a lovely fenced in garden right on the main road, that you might not even know was there when you drive by. We had the place to ourselves while we were there. It's a lovely little spot with a number of benches (and a great bench swing) in the shade.

I've decided this year is the year of the day lily. They're seemingly everywhere, and so many different colors than they ever had before. I'm used to the tall orange day lilies growing wild on the roadsides out in the country, but there are tons of yellows, pinks and whites in so many gardens. I'd love to have some myself, but don't really have the room to let them spread, and letting them spread is the fun of having day lilies.
