Fill your day with Mediterranean Warmth–the first Lecture is scheduled for February 22.

The annual McLaughlin Garden Lecture Series kicks off for 2017 on February 22 when garden volunteer Harriet Robinson of Otisfield presents an illustrated lecture “Mediterranean Flowers in Maine Gardens.”
Robinson has a doctorate in classical archaeology and has traveled to Greece for many years. After enjoying and photographing wildflowers in Greece, especially Crete, she decided to try to grow some of them in her garden. She also uses her undergraduate major in Ancient Greek to explore the mythology behind flower names and translate botanical names.
The lecture series will be held on 6 consecutive Wednesdays at 4 PM upstairs in Barnard McLaughlin’s historic home, 97 Main Street, South Paris. Tea begins at 3:30. There is no fee; donations are requested.

If you have questions, please email or call 207-743-8820 between 10 AM and 4PM.
