With Spring underway in Maine the plants can’t wait to get out of the ground.  With such a short growing season no time is wasted by either Mother Nature or the people who live here.  As I posted a few weeks ago people were on the beach already wearing bikinis.  That’s even early for native Mainer’s but it didn’t stop them.

The tourist season in Maine is huge and it’s important to keep the visitors entertained and happy.  That’s why during Spring and Summer months there’s a steady stream of festivals, farmer’s markets, fairs, and individual town celebrations.

Last weekend my better-half returned from her week long trip and we were able to get out and enjoy the sunny weather on Saturday.  We were making our way through the city of Sanford to visit a nursery further south in North Berwick. We happened upon our first town gathering of the year.  It was some type of farmer’s market where booths were set up by neighboring farms selling their homemade products and plants.  We immediately parked and began to mingle.

It’s always fun to visit with the farmers and to purchase a few products while also snapping a few pictures.  Everyone was enjoying the beautiful day and the excellent company.  It was one of my first visits back to the city where I lived for eight years and I was glad to see things hadn’t changed at all. People were as friendly as I remembered and welcoming of any and all visitors.
