For our summer vacation were able to sneak in and out of Cape Cod for the hottest week of the summer–between the death of Eunice Kennedy Shriver and the arrival of Hurricane Bill, Hurricane Obama and death of Sen. Ted Kennedy. While there, we did get into Provincetown, way out on the tip of the Cape, for a day. It's a pretty little town of jam-packed homes & businesses separated by narrow, creative-looking gardens. Their gardens are a great mix of everything from hokey to handsome. It was the day before their Gay Pride day (good timing on our part again), so the town was all a twitter and being decorated in anticipation for what looked to be a very colorful party. Here's some of what we saw, peeking over & around fences.
Not often having back yards, they make the most of front yards.
I've seen wagons planted before, but it was the placement in front of the steps, middle of their walk, that struck me as odd. Oh, and the rocks.
These flowers were as big as a hub cap.
A lot of work trimming to such an odd shape. Maybe they're working on getting it into a heart shape?
The store, Wa. I'll be posting on their gardens in back of the store in the near future.
Liked the relief sculpture of buildings carved into the stairwell.
Awesome fence of metal flowers. Matched their light poles around the restaurant tables.
Another front garden with seating. Good karma when your awning fabric matches your furniture fabric.
Pretty use of a narrow space.
Great looking plantings looking very "Cape Cod-like."
