Flora and Fauna: Maine

We had the great fortune to spend four months in Maine (July – October).   It is the most beautiful place.  Flowers galore, extraordinary coast lines, lake and mountain views to take your breath away.  We were told there were many animals we didn’t have the opportunity to see (Moose for example).  I will leave you with choice pictures rather than words, as both do not show justice to my wonderful Maine.  I stand in awe of God’s majestic creation.
