Inside the garden

Lily Jacobi shares photos from her recent visit to a special garden in York, Maine.

"It was a cloudy, gray, rainy day when I decided to do a road trip to York, Maine for The Garden Conservancy-Open Days. This was the first property that I visited and is called Brave Boat Harbor Farm. This garden is situated far from the beaten path on 100 acres bordering the Atlantic Ocean.  The garden has been evolving over the last 50 years and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It surrounds and complements a Georgian style stone house that was built in the 50s."
