Wonders Among the Stones
The Pine Tree State’s distinctive shoreline features miles of rugged, rock-edged peninsulas marked by towering conifers and tide-chiseled coves. Amidst this unique landscape lies a beautiful surprise: Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens.

  1. Why is it so hard to order Classics on the blog and / or email? I already subscribe and would like a submit for the latest Flowers and Garden Classic. Where and how. WE do not receive Classics in the town where I live in any stores.

  2. I am looking forward to receiving this issue! I understand the publication date is Tuesday, 09 May and I can not wait!

    In the New England area, we are just starting to come alive with Spring and this Victoria Classics issue is coming at the perfect time! I hope everyone enjoys the Spring and this great new Classics issue!

    God bless !

      • Brandon, you say you found a copy of this new Classics, does this mean you found it in a store? If so can you say the name of the store? Thank you.

  3. I have only just received an email notice for this special Classics Flowers and Garden issue today June 16, 2017. A bit late? Is this Flowers and Gardens issue sold only online or can it be purchased in stores?
