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”.

This page is offered and maintained by the Amherst Island Community Alliance.

Cynoglossum amabile, Chinese Forget Me Not. Taller, bluer, bushier, bigger blooms, later, and longer lasting than the common variety. They like poor soil and great for xeriscaping. Blue is the rarest flower colour, and these are ever so blue! Self seeding and no pest problems that I have seen. I love them. #amherstisland #chineseforgetmenot #blueflowers ...

I love the look of the forget-me-not going to seed; right now it is silvery, later on, black. I have another type of forget-me-not that is quite different from the common one we all know. It is just coming into bloom now. I will take a photo of it for you to see, soon. #amherstisland #amherstislandblooms #forgetmenot #gonetoseed #gardenblooms #garden #gardening #gardendesign #gardenjournal #gardeninspiration #gardenlove #gardenideas #gardenlife #gardener #gardenersofinstagram #gardenblooms #gardenlove #gardenersworld #gardenersofig #gardenideas #countrygarden #countryhomeandgarden #zone6a #easternontariogarden ...
