Lily Jacobi of New Hampshire shares her Beacon Hill holiday highlights with us.
I was going through my photo album and found these pictures that were taken in Beacon Hill, Boston, a few years ago. The neighbors always do a great job of decorating for the holidays and these are a few photos that I snapped. Merry Christmas everyone.

Your neighbor's window box compositions go so beautifully with the elegant architecture of their home and... sigh...that front entry is timelessly gorgeous.
It is quite lovely I agree. I actually live in New Hampshire about an hour north of Boston. But Beacon Hill is an old neighborhood right near the state house and it is a old faithful with regard to Gardens. I believe they been hosting the Beacon Hill garden club tour on the third Thursday of May for about 100 years now. It is always an event, not to be missed. I have quite a few photos from this neighborhood from years past. I will send some along for everyone to see.
Whenever I read a comment like yours. Lily, I give myself a good self scolding. I lived in Hopkinton MA for six years back in the late 80's/early90's and rarely made the 35 minute drive to those special historic parts of Boston. I went to one spring garden show in downtown Boston and visited the Garden in the Woods in Framingham . I really didn't take advantage of my time there.
Well you can come back and visit anytime!
Wish I had neighbors like this...Happy Holidays everyone!
Happy holidays Diane!
Thank you for the photos.. It's a nice change of pace to see homes in urban areas decorated for the holidays. Good luck,Joe
Merry Christmas Joe!
Lily,Merry Christmas to you & yours & once again thank you for posting these cheerful Christmas decorations, Joe
Good morning, Lily. Thanks for sharing photos from your past trip to Boston. We've only been once, recently, and fell in love with the city. These are very nice, and I love the unconventional red peppers with white cyclamen used to add holiday color.
Do you create any seasonal containers at your home or ski cabin? (Am I thinking of the wrong person?..... :)
Thanks for the plant id's on the white and red elements in the 3rd picture. I was puzzling over what they could be.
Well, I *think* I am right.... :) It's an ailment from which I suffer. Lorraine calls it 'Medical Illustrator Syndrome'; I'm really good at pretending I know what I'm talking about!
I think you are correct Tim!
Ha, well, you know the expression..."in the land of the blind, the one eyed man is king." That means if you say it with confidence, I'll probably believe it when it comes to plant identifications.
I do containers every year… I have posted some pictures of previous creations. Sometimes I don't get good pictures or I don't get them at the right time. But I'll post again soon don't worry Tim!
Thanks, Lily, for the holiday cheer.
Merry Christmas Linda!
Merry Christmas to you, too, Lily. My mum shared your name so it is special to me:)
Window boxes decorated for the holidays are so welcoming. You certainly have talented neighbors, Lily! Lucky you and everyone that passes by!
I believe the house that is featured is actually on Beacon Street which is one of the main thorough fare through Boston. So lots of people get to see it every day!
Thank you for all the wonderful door decorations this week. It certainly adds cheer to the season.
Merry Christmas to you and your family.
Those are really snazzy windowboxes! I hope your neighbor fixes yours too. Happy Holidays!
