Vacation Memories #3 New England Flower Boxes and Houses

Back by popular demand!!!  To my several blog readers out there, sorry it's been so long.  But I am happy to know that you enjoy the blog.    

We saw many wonderful flower boxes everywhere we visited in New England.  And, the houses... what can I say?  We saw some spectacular homes, especially along the sea coast.  I don't have pictures of the really special ones - too hard to take a picture from the road.  I would love to go back just to look at the houses - and maybe be a little braver about getting close enough to get a good picture.

 In every little town, the shops had fabulous flower boxes in the windows.
This is a wonderful old home in Marblehead.  Up on the top I'm sure you would have a million dollar view of the ocean.
 Lovely combination of colors and textures.
 Here is a close-up of the one above.
 We were there in August - so everything was very full and mature. 
 Pretty pink geraniums outside a childrens store.
 The flowers in this window weren't too good - but there is a C.C. Barton print inside the gallery!  She is one of my favorite bunny artists.
 Great greenery.
 I had some of these on my patio this year and really loved them.
 Vine geraniums.
 The red grass in this is so cool.
 I think these were in Newburyport, MA.
 This was outside a great seafood place along the coast near Rye, NH. 
 Also near Rye, NH.
 This was on an incredible site - pretty much surrounded by ocean.
 Here's another example of a shingle-style home.  I love this look.
 There are lots of funny little cottages like this one.  It seems like a bad storm would just carry this out to sea!
 This is in Gloucester (I think.)
 Gloucester, MA.
 I would love to know the story behind this castle.  I think we were supposed to go see this, but never found it.  I took this picture from the whale-watching boat as we were leaving the Gloucester harbor on our way out to look for whales.
Speaking of whales...  yes we saw whales!  That would be a good subject for the next post!


  1. One very nice blog! I would think people from all over the world would drop by for a look see.

  2. Amy...just got a chance to see your photos of this post..amazing pictures...makes me want to paint the houses if I knew how to do that!! I want to live there!!!

  3. This watch is like a black hole in the sense that you cannot stop gazing at the replica watches uk of the watch. I was on board until the strap and price came around, it is an attractive alternative to the rado replica sale look excepting the extra text. I would have liked to see his name if replica watches had to be there at all in red and surrounding. The uniformity of the gems in respective color and shape is fantastic to behold and I can imagine even the most rolex replica sale admiring it if they were to find one of these watches on their wrist. When discussing the far more elaborate. Which are designed to create a very small space between skin and the bracelet allowing for some flexibility during hot and cold weather. The dial is slightly different, with Rolex choosing a glossy hublot replica finish as opposed to the matte dial on the non gem model. This replica watches sale costs a lot more than a tie, but I see it much the same way.
