Wildflowers of Maine in summer

The last frost loosens it’s chilly grip on Maine’s soil in mid-May, and by the solstice the barren white landscape of winter has given way to a lavish green land.

Right now the wildflowers are in full bloom, the earlier blooming blue eyed grass, blueits, violets, and dandelions have gone by. Wood lilies are budding and the lupines are just starting to develop little green seed pods.

Today I’m heading out with an old book to press some of these lovely little wildflowers of Maine.
