…on the island of Nantucket. The sun was setting, we were waiting for our ferry and the shopkeeper was occupied. Right after I took this shot, she came out, sat down and smoked until we left. Timing really is everything.
Just another Nantucket window and flower box.
Sunset on the marina, Nantucket.
I would love to know the names of the flowers in the window box! I know the sweet potato vine…what are the purple flowers? Anyone know???
Hi. I’ve been told recently that the white flower is bacopa and the orange flower is trailing petunia. The blue-violet flower is scaevola. Hope this helps. 🙂
Yes that helps a lot!!!! Thanks!
Glad to hear it. 🙂
I am thankful for the information
The purple is scaevola, the orange is calibrachoa and the white are bacopa.
I think those aren’t petunias but a smaller flower called “Cali”. http://www.dtekdesigns.com/SchmidtBrosInc/?page_id=4&category=143
I’ve been told they are “trailing petunias,” but I really don’t know, so you could be right!
My favorite garden center calls them “million bells”. I’ve put them in window boxes and hanging planters. They do very well and come in lots of colors. They are definitely in the petunia family but don’t require deadheading.
Just adding my two cents, but I think Calibrachoa and trailing petunia are the same.
Beautiful pictures of place that I have never been to. The blue table is exactly same as the one in our garden, except that it changed from that exact blue to an olive green last year. Lovely post.
Thank you for the kind comment!

Thank you. 🙂
I’d love to be able to grow such lovely flower boxes. Now’s the time to start planning!
Beautiful combination, on my way to nursery now. Thanks for the idea.
I love that window
box arrangement. I am going to try to duplicate that look this summer. Thanks!
Oh, you’re welcome! Have fun with it. 🙂
