Sprigs: Flowers Make a Town

I'm raving about Langley, Washington, a little town on Whidbey Island. 

Granted, it is in Puget Sound and overlooks the Cascade Mountains, so it has sensational views on a clear  day. 

But even without those two geographic gems, it is enchanting because of the flowers. Why can't our town do the same?

I was first captivated by these tall Queen Charlotte anemones spilling over the sidewalk.

Look at these alluring window boxes, 

the delectable planter filled with plants and decorative

The Inn at Langley
and the captivating landscaping.

It just goes to show that flowers can shape the personality of a place.
