Flowers Around Town: Beautiful Kennebunkport, Maine

For those of you who have never been to Kennebunkport, Maine, I recently took some photos to give you a virtual tour showcasing the lovely flower displays found all around the port. Kennbunkport is one of my favorite places to visit, so I try to get there several times a year. On my most recent visit a few weeks ago, I was delighted to find so many beautiful flower displays.
 I'm not sure the variety of the red potted flowers above, but what a beautiful accent for this arbor. What a view!
A lovely border...
 The bridge across the river is adorned with boxes of annuals.
All along the sidewalks of Kennebunkport you will find these boat planters filled with different annuals.
 Here's another example...
 ...and another.
 Most shops have some kind of window box or tiny garden.
I love this school of fish!
 How clever are these geese sculptures?
How about this unique display of succulents outside one shop?
Another shot of the bridge of flowers.
On this side of the bridge, you will see the marina and businesses along the river.
 
If you ever have a chance to visit Kennebunkport in person, do! In the meantime, I'll continue to bring you posts when I visit. Stay tuned for a September tour of the Franciscan Monastery gardens to be posted soon...

The beach tourist attraction cities out here on the west coast do a similar good job with their floral decorations. The boats of flowers and the blue glass fish are a nice touch. I like the pink Hydrangea paniculatas.

Awesome post! The wooden boxes with succulent is at at awesome store called Daytrip Society and the plantings were designed by Michelle Rose, owner of minka in the port! Great stuff.

Hi there, I am very interested in finding out where I could get one of the boat planters that are pictured. A co-worker of mine is retiring and saw them in Kennebunkport a few weeks ago. I think it would be a beautiful gift for her. Is there any chance you might know where I can start looking? You have a wonderful eye for beautiful flowers. Thank you for any help.

I don't know but you could try calling the Kennebunkport Chamber of Commerce. Someone there may be able to point you in the right direction. Good luck!
