The Season Begins

The Bridge of Flowers

The Bridge of Flowers, an old trolley bridge, that now floriferously joins the towns of Shelburne and Buckland opened officially on April 1.  On that day this year there was snow on the Bridge, but you can see we are no longer worrying about snow.  At this time of the year people begin asking me about the best season to view the Bridge. I answer there is no Best Season. The Bridge has been designed to be in full bloom through October. Each gardener might have an idea about the Best Season from their perspective – daffodil season, wisteria, rose, astilbe, or dahlia season, but as far as I am concerned every season is just The Best.

    It is so very beautiful. It reminds me of English gardens.

    Nan – You can get a good cup of tea – or coffee – in town, too.

    I go by that bridge every year but we have never stopped to see it. Isn’t that sad?

    I was just mentioning how beautiful the Bridge of Flowers was in Sept. and wondering how it looked in spring. It looks beautiful and is well worth a trip. Thanks for showing it to me.

    daphne – It is sad that you haven’t seen the Bridge. Be sure and stop by next time you are in the Falls.
    Layanee – it truly is beautiful in every season.
