Welcome to Amherst Island

Amherst Island is located in Lake Ontario west of Kingston, Ontario, Canada. The island is part of Loyalist Township in Lennox and Addington County. Amherst Island is located about 3 kilometres (2 mi) offshore from the rest of Loyalist Township and access to the island is by way of the Frontenac II ferry from Millhaven.

The main population centre on the island is the village of Stella, which is the where the ferry lands on the island side. Harrowsmith Country Life  declared the island’s local hamlet, Stella, as one of the “prettiest towns in Canada”.

New this weekend: A Succulent Arrangement! Love a floral centrepiece for your indoor or outdoor dining table, but don’t want to fuss over it? This is as low maintenance as it gets. The best part? It will look gorgeous for up to one year! The antique earthenware container is low and wide and doesn’t impede conversation across the table. Just keep the arrangement in a location that gets morning sun and move it to the table when entertaining. Water very sparingly about once every three months. It’s a conversation piece, and yes, the pink stones were collected from Sand Beach, to compliment the grey, plum, blue and lime tones of the plants. Bring it back in a year to either have it redone, or get the pot deposit back! This one will arrive at The Weasel & Easel tomorrow morning at 10am. #succulents #floraldesign #floralarrangement #amherstisland #livingcentrepiece #lastsaboutayear #lowmaintenanceplants ...

So thrilled about this wonderful book review that came in via invisibooks for #AtLastCount… especially because it is from a reader I don’t know. Thank you lowcommitmentbooksclub for the very kind words. You have made my writer dreams come true. #birdsinbooks #birding #ocd #OCDAwareness #mentalhealth #amherstisland ...

Another month into the garden season. The milkweed is just starting to bloom, and the camomile is ready to harvest. I still haven’t got all the plants in; nicotiana, tithonia, Russian sage, and butterfly pea will go in today, and then the herbaceous plantings will finally be done. After that, 24 native shrub and tree seedlings will go in throughout the woodland gardens - witch hazel, nannyberry, spicebush, flowering dogwood, black chokeberry, and winterberry. #amherstisland #cuttinggarden #easternontariogarden #zone6a #gardendesign ...

There is something so sweet about visiting the north shore of my island.
.
About seeing the mainland from our lake bound refuge.
.
About watching the sun set over the water, instead of over fields.
.
Add to it the delight of spending time in the company of friends—and the joy of making new connections—and you have a recipe for a perfect evening.
.
It is so good to be able to gather again around a campfire to share laughs and stories and hugs.
.
It is so good to feel like a part of the community where I’ve chosen to make my home.
.
And to celebrate these long days of spring and summer, as the solstice fast approaches.
.
To revel in the light and warmth and the ephemeral beauty of this time of year.
.
Knowing that this kinetic season will not last forever.
.
Soaking up all the magic while we can.
.
