This post is a little off the subject, but as a member of the Bridge of Flowers committee I can’t help blowing the Bridge’s horn. The famed magazine Architectural Digest has opened their on-line article about elevated gardens around the world with our beautiful Bridge of Flowers in Shelburne Falls. They even noted that our Bridge is probably the first renovated Bridge in the United States. Our Bridge of Flowers now attracts thousands of visitors every year and sends each one home with new inspiration for their own gardens.
Tokyo’s Bridge is already in place, but we’ll have to wait a couple of years more before the Bridges in London, Rotterdam and Washington D.C. are planted. I am so glad we inspired all these other grand and green Bridges. Surely we can take credit, can’t we?
REMINDER – There is still time to leave a comment here and win a copy of Terrariums: Gardens Under Glass as well as my own book, The Roses at the End of the Road, when I have the Giveaway Drawing on Monday, December 14.
