Nantucket Window Boxes

If you’ve ever been to Nantucket, you know that there is a certain enchanted feeling you get while strolling around the cobble-stone streets of downtown.
While I took a moment to enjoy the island I live on, and do a little window shopping, I suddenly thought to myself, “Wow! We must have some of the best window boxes in the WORLD!”. I decided to pull out the smart phone and snap a few pictures of my favorites to share with you!


Of course Flowers on Chestnut Street’s window box is just perfect



D. Dream knows the way to Nantucketer’s hearts. DAFFODILS!



You will find hidden gems like these on side streets off of Main Street.



Get out and enjoy the Daffodils while they are here!



Loving these colors!


Black Eyed Susan’s window box is a KNOCK OUT!



You will find these beauties at the Nantucket Culinary Center



Thank you so much to the hardworking gardeners and landscapers of Nantucket that help keep Nantucket beautiful! We appreciate you!
