On a cool but sunny spring day in mid-May, my husband Ron and I took advantage of the “Admission to the Gardens Library Program”.

We have visited the Gardens a number of times over the years enjoying the unique eco-systems of the Maine coast area. The Gardens are truly a “living museum”, a wonderful way to learn about and enjoy the diverse flora of the area. We experienced all it had to offer – the gardens coming into bloom, the quiet walks on the woods trails, and discovering the “Giant Ad­ven­ture” – five humongous wood­en Trolls “hidden” throughout the woods. Their story is not be missed.

So back to the “Admission to the Gardens Library Pro­gram”. The program is one in which local libraries can participate allowing their town residents to reserve free admission passes during the May – October season. What a wonderful way to experience a part of Maine and enjoy a summer day out in nature. The Albion library made this opportunity available to Albion residents.
