All around in Maine we see flowers growing on the sides of the roads – here are some photos:
When we visited the site of the “North Bridge” where the “Shot Heard Round the World” happened (the start of the Revolutionary War) I was pleasantly surprised to find a beatiful garden on the grounds of the Park Service building.
It’s nice to finally be in spring time and it’s beautiful all over in the northeast part of the country. I’ve noticed that there’s more use of color in people’s front yards than I ever saw in So. California. There are colorful flowering bushes and plants everywhere!

Wildflowers we saw during our drives to Mount Baker and along the coast of Washington:
We saw several different types of wildflowers around the Devils Tower area. Here are some pictures:
