Wander back to see a mermaid, huge lion, Alice and Wonderland characters, a giant lobster, flowers and so much more. Paths take you through various groupings made of all sorts of metal - nails, gears, wrenches, tanks, horseshoes and miscellaneous pieces. Star Wars-like characters play poker under a giant shade tree on the hill. A frog has captured a dragonfly on the end of his long tongue.
The sculptures made of junk - some painted, some not - will bring a smile or chuckle. You might catch a glimpse of a real bull frog sitting on the metal ship in the small pond by the shop. In any case, what a fun interlude in your travels along the coast of mid-Maine!
IF YOU GO: Be sure to pull off the pavement and park safely. There is no charge to wander through the garden and enjoy the sculptures. Donations are accepted and appreciated. Sculptures are for sale.
WHEN TO VISIT: Visitors are welcome anytime.
