North by East. It’s Showtime
Portland lawyer and gentleman farmer, David Moulton, grew more than 200 Chinese peony cultivars over 7 acres when he owned Gilsland Farm in Falmouth during the first half of the 20th century. Today many of the plants grow wild in the woods and meadows surrounding the area’s current occupant, the Maine Audubon Society. June is a good month for viewing these plants in bloom. [image]
