More Cape May Window Boxes

More Cape May Window Boxes

My Instagram account keeps getting more Cape May window boxes. According to Instagram hash tag window boxes of Cape May there are over one hundred photos filed. A few of those pictures have been posted by others, including one person in Boston.

The Insta-series started out as a simple collection of a few neighborhood window boxes. The favorable response the photos received, inspired me to seek out more Cape May window boxes. Some responses have encouraged revisits as the season wanes on. Many are holding up quite, well despite the heat.

I’m not really sure where the project will lead. One local artist suggested a coffee table book or a calendar. For now, we will enjoy another blog post of more Cape May window boxes.

Everyone seems to be in agreement that Louisa’s Chocolate Bar as well as the restaurant display splendid window boxes:


Some residential window boxes get really creative and colorful like this one near the post office:

I am grateful for the tips that have come in emails and direct messages not to miss certain overlooked window boxes like this:

Decorative porch and railing boxes seem to appear when traditional window boxes are not in my line of sight:

By the time most people hit Lafayette street on the way into town, we’re travelling too fast to see this great box located near Cape May marina:

One of my personal favorites to date, was located on out-of-the-way Yacht Ave. I wasn’t even looking for window boxes that morning–instead intrigued by the large yachts at South Jersey Marina: 083

    Hello John,

    We have loved your theme of the Cape May window boxes. What made you think of taking window boxes? What was the revelation that brought you to the brink of beauty?

      Thanks for reading and commenting Jeff and Michelle. Originally a collection in Newburyport Mass inspired the idea. Then my own wife’s window boxes had me noticing the boxes this spring in the area and it took off from there.
