Where are we going, and why are we in this handbasket?

Postcards from Maine: Asticou Azalea Garden
We alway arrive too late in June to see the Asticou Azalea Garden (in the town of Northeast Harbor) at its peak. But there are usually enough hints of color remaining to suggest what we've missed. While the azaleas were mostly finished, some rhododendrons and other shrubs were in bloom this year. It was a gloomy day but we found plenty to admire and enjoy in this carefully tended Japanese-style garden. (Someday I would like to come across a cat in it, but so far we've only seen birds and the very occasional frog.)
