Walking past this view I couldn't help it, I just had to grab my phone, snap a photo, and voila! I am sharing you the beauty Nantucket has anytime because I am constantly amazed at the colors. (Also note the blue door in the distance? So much character) See you on Nantucket!

Charm in the Spring on Nantucket!

Flower boxes at the American Seasons Restaurant near Century House

Cheers from Nantucket!
One amazing thing about Nantucket (and there are many) is the flower box!  Somehow, these flower boxes appear out of nowhere with bright, charming, lovely flowers and I adore them. They're everywhere!!!! And I photograph them any chance I get. Cheers to the creativity. 

The top one is at the American Seasons restaurant right near (below) Century House. What a nice welcoming sign when you arrive on Nantucket!  Agreed?

Cheers everyone!
