With its blooming flowers and bright colors, August on Shelter Island is a sight to behold

Our sales representative Michelina Da Fonte spotted an enormous hibiscus flower outside Maria’s Kitchen on Ferry Road (see below).

“It was one of the biggest flowers in bloom I’ve ever seen,” she said.  “It was absolutely stunning and I just couldn’t resist!”

Here are a few snap shots taken around the Island this week.
