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.
I had some of these on my patio this year and really loved them.
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.)
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!
