An old graveyard in Pembroke in Down-East Maine was covered with phlox flowers.

I nearly drove by this spot without stopping, but my wife and I have a rule “No photo regret!”, so I turned around and spent about an hour taking pictures… In the rain… A little different style for me, but I liked the way this came out!
