Last night the HH and I went and toured the Gardens Aglow at the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardensin Boothbay and it was pretty spectacular.
There were over a mile of display gardens to walk through and it was so much fun, we’re already looking forward to going next year.
And, as an added bonus, there was even a stand selling hot chocolate and Holy Donuts. No leg lamps though. 😉
It was the perfect date night for a cold and windy December evening.
Here’s a few pictures from last night.
Have a great weekend everyone,
