After a very rainy May and a kind of rainy June it seems like July is just what we have been waiting for. The sun has been shining more then at anytime this summer and as I drive around the greater Manchester, NH area I see more and more people and contractors rolling up their sleeves to complete this years landscaping projects.
Coming up this week on the island of Nantucket the annual Green Thumb flower show sponsored by Nantucket Garden Club will take place on July 13th at the Coffin School located on Winter Street. Sounds to me like a perfect excuse to jump on the ferry and spend a glorious day on the island of Nantucket. The flower show is open to the public from 10:00 AM to 4:30 PM and there is no charge though donations are excepted. It might be a good idea to call before you board the ferry just to make sure nothing has changed. The visitors Center phone number is 508-228-0925 .. And if anyone attends I hope you will comment on this post when you return.
And for those of you looking for something closer to home I want to suggest a trip to Boston for a day of visiting the Rose Kennedy Greenway. The Greenway is a collection of 5 parks that were created from reclaimed land that was exposed when much of Boston’s elevated highways were placed underground during the Big-Dig. the parks are located in Boston’s North End, Wharf Distract, Dewey Square, Chinatown and Fort Point Channel. Each of the Rose Kennedy Greenway parks offers something different vibrant and without a doubt is worth a trip to see even if you have been there many times.
