The Bridge Continues to Bloom

People are always asking me what is blooming on the Bridge of Flowers in Shelburne Falls.  It changes every day but here are  some current views.


These azaleas are as sunny as our June days. The tornadoes that went through Springfield and beyond on Wednesday didn’t do any damage up our way.


Azaleas have their own season, but the annual osteospernums will bloom all summer long.  That is what makes annuals so valuable in any planting.


Blue is always lovely with yellow.


Everyone knows I am a sucker for pinks and reds.  This is one of my favorite rhododendrons.


Weigela is another one of the striking spring blooming shrubs on the Bridge of Flowers.  I can’t wait to see what will come next.

    I am so glad that those tornadoes didn’t mess with you or your family. Such a scary time of year. The bridge continues to entertain the masses with beautiful blooms.

    Pat, we went to the Rhodadendrum garden here in portland where many of the blooms are just past prime. Della described them nicely as “aging starlets.”

    Lisa – The Bridge is really gorgeous these days.
    Janice – Della definitely has a way with words.
