Recently we visited Essex County and Cape Ann, Massachusetts. One of our favorite towns in this area is Manchester-By-The-Sea. You might recognize this town from several films, including Mermaids, The Proposal, Edge of Darkness, The Love Letter and others. We love it for the quaint shops, beautiful views and pretty houses. While walking around I snapped a few photos of the flowers. I especially love the purple and green petunias in the planter with the topiary.
