On a Whim ~ Snug Harbor Farm


Over the weekend hubby and I decided to get out of town for a bit and travel up the Maine coast. We stopped at some of our favorite spots and discovered some new ones too; Stonewall Kitchen , Mother's Beach, Wells Auto Museum, The Maine Diner (had to do it ~ we were tourists after all,) Rachel Carson Wildlife Refuge, Harbor Candy Shop, and lots of antique stores ~ my favorites are in Wells!

What we didn't expect to find was this treasure, Snug Harbor Farm


Look at this sweet little greeter ~ a mini horse, the baby of the group. He stood only about 30" high ~ so adorable


The greenhouses were filled with the most beautiful topiary


all arranged beautifully and carefully manicured



A rusty gate leads to the house. (Not pictured are wonderful "bracket" topiary which are meant to look like they are holding up the shed.)


At every turn it was special, and the love and care they give their plants shows


The duck house


We fell in love with this frog fountain ~ it would look perfect at the end of our pool


A pile of pots, all hand thrown and stamped Snug Harbor Farm


I hope your travels find you down an unexpected road, you may just discover a hidden jewel!
