Speaking of Boothbay, Maine Crime Writers Gerry Boyle, Vicki Doudera, Kate Flora, James Hayman, Lea Wait and I (along with lots and lots of other great authors) will all be in Boothbay this Saturday from 12:30 to 3:30 at Books in Boothbay, a celebration of Maine writing. We’d love to see you there!
Hi. Barb here.
CLAMMED UP, the first book in my new Maine Clambake Mystery series takes place in a harbor town in mid-coast Maine, in June. I was lucky enough to be writing my book in Boothbay Harbor exactly in that time frame–so inspiring! But then I looked up, and it was late June. The early June flowers were starting to fade. How was I going to remember what was blooming during the eight-day period in which my book is set?
So I grabbed a camera and went for a walk. Here’s what I saw.
Also, rhododendrons, a little off peak by the time I took the photos, a riot of annuals, tons of wild flowers and lupines, of course! Too many to show.
June’s sometimes a little cool for typical summertime pursuits in Maine, but it’s the best month for flowers in my opinion.
