Okay, I know you all think I’m obsessed with topiary plants. Well, maybe just a bit! And guess what we did in Maine last week? Visited Snug Harbor Farm in Kennebunk so I could
buy check out their famous "tops." I behaved.....came home with
only four :)
Snug Harbor Farm is more than topiaries, it is a plantsman’s paradise! In addition to annuals, perennials, shrubs and trees, SHF grows and stocks many hard to find house plants such as unusual ivies, fancy begonias and topiaries of many varieties: myrtles, fuchsias, lavender, etc.
I could have spent all day there. The grounds were beautiful and natural. Many charming buildings, barns and sheds dotted the property. There were also exotic birds and chickens. The entire farm had a lovely carefree feel.
One of many buildings with wonderful home and garden items.
Produce organically grown at the farm.
I headed straight for the topiary greenhouses!
The topiaries are grown in custom hand thrown terra-cotta pots.
Glorious old barns, sheds and outbuildings filled with pots, tools and garden items for sale.
Plants neatly lined up in grassy fields.
