The historic Bridge of Flowers is in bloom! When I ran across yesterday admiring all the flowers I met three visitors from Australia, taking lots of photos – and who could blame them. I took photos too. First there is the new sign on the Shelburne side. It was painted by Jane Wegscheider of The Art Garden and hangs from a structure created by Bob Compton of Rising Sun Forge.
The flowers begin even before you step on the Bridge.
All manner of daffodils – and companions – are in bloom.
The magnolia blossoms are just opening against a perfect spring sky.
The first hellebore has opened. This is just the beginning, and those of us who need to run regular errands in Shelburne Falls can enjoy every shift in the season
