Nantucket In Bloom


Happy Monday, all. What are you up to this week? Our garden project rolls along, and currently thoughts are drifting to pots, planters and the flowers that will bloom in them. Fortunately, there was plenty to inspire in Nantucket a few weeks ago... pansies and posies and blossoms galore flourished in window boxes and gorgeous containers around town and all over the island...
 







It's enough to make anyone's thumbs a bit greener, don't you think?

What's blooming where you're planted right now?

  1. Wow! Plenty of inspiration here. I love to see floral displays around town and those pansies in the first photo and the arrangements in the second are particularly stunning. Last week I just about finished our pots and I'm especially pleased with the combination of orange geraniums and petunias in various shades of purple with a touch of white.

  4. Love how our trips inspire! Lovely photos. I'm inspired. We have peonies in our yard. Everything in central PA is slower than usual to show. We did plant marigolds, petunias and other common annuals in our pots and plots. But they are growing with all the easy rains we've been getting.

  5. Love the inspiration we get during our travels! Love the photos you shared. We have peonies blooming but everything else is slow. We planted the usual annuals that are doing well espcially with the rain we have been getting. Have a good evening.

  6. Peonies are blooming and we're hoping the rain we had today won't scatter their lovely blossoms to the ground... We prefer our petals on the flowers! Looks like you visited one of our favorite flower shops (and clients!) on the island.
