Pink and red dahlias

There seems to be no end to beauty on the Bridge of Flowers in Massachusetts. This is Dahlia Season and many visitors have been arriving to admire the beauties of autumn.

Purple and white dahlia

This large dahlia is different in color and form. There are many beautiful dahlias.

Large pink dahlia

I wanted to show the size of this large pink dahlia – compared to my husband’s hand.

There are medium size dahlias in the garden.
There are tiny white dahlias in the garden.
Tall Zinnias

There are other flowers on the BOF , and not only dahlias are small or tall. Look at these tall zinnias.

Anemone Honorine Jobert

Beautiful Anemone Honorine Jobert is also tall with lovely blossoms.

Callicarpa americana

Callicarpa americana is also known as American Beautyberry. This  will bloom, with its beautyberries well into winter.

After our walk across the Bridge of Flowers we took a stroll to other Shelburne Falls attractions.

Shelburne Falls Mosaic

Shelburne has several beautiful mosaics. And you can see how important the BOF is to the artists in town.

Deerfield River Mosaic

We admired this mosaic and then walked on to see more of the Deerfield River.

BAKED bakery

On our way to the Falls, we stopped to buy some cookies. We chose the Date Nut Bars. Delicious!

The Falls

The Falls do not always look like this, but we have had a lot of rain over the past few days. And now it is raining again, so that is the end of our Shelburne Falls Tour. We had a great time.
