Maine's Lupines, Beach Roses, and Buttercups
While there is no question that "Leafing Season" has a better brand, "Lupine Season" on the Maine coast is just as wonderful. Everywhere in May and June are visual treats.
Lupines can be found from the edges of the Maine Turnpike, to the back roads, to the water's edge. In purple, pink and white, they are clustered in small patches or entire fields.
Beach roses make the best case for combining pink and green. And constant breezes perfectly mingle their fragrance with salt water.
Fields of buttercups are also everywhere.
And when they come together, it is truly a symphony.
