The calendar says spring is here but I haven’t seen many signs until today. The daffodils are coming up, the lilac tree has buds, and I saw a few yellow petals peeking out of the forsythia today. So now I am thinking of spring. I can’t wait for it to be in full bloom!

One of my favorite places in spring is Asticou Azalea Garden, in Northeast Harbor, Maine. It is generally at it’s peak the end of May or beginning of June. The spring green colors of Acadia are also amazing that time of year. They are almost as varied as the fall foliage. Tip: To fully enjoy the spring foliage make sure you bring the bug spray. It is too beautiful to let those pesky black flies keep you indoors! I am eagerly awaiting the burst of color and my first hike in the springtime air!
