Bridge of Flowers



One of the most incredible floral attractions in the western New England town of Shelburne Falls is a bridge of flowers.


It even has its own website which you can explore here.

It's maintained entirely by volunteers and draws hundreds of tourists every summer.




The flowers are truly beautiful.




The bridge goes between Shelburne Falls and Buckland, Massachusetts.



What a unique attraction!



Please enjoy looking at these many flower photos as much as I enjoyed taking them for you.




If the truth be told, this is just a fraction of the photos I snapped of the Bridge of Flowers this summer!

HAVE YOU EVER HEARD OF AN ENTIRE BRIDGE OF FLOWERS? ISN'T IT A GREAT CONCEPT?

Bryant House Restaurant in Vermont



After the arduous task of perusing the Vermont Country Store, a light lunch of salads is always in order.

Bryant House Restaurant is located right next door to the famed country store so it's a hop, skip and a jump away.


Two friends and I visited both recently. 

Two of us ordered salads and one ordered a veggie burger without the roll and sweet potato fries.



My salad (shown right below) consisted of apple and chicken slices, lettuce, walnuts and green and red grapes, with a maple dressing. 


My friend's salad included blueberries, cucumbers, strawberries, cashews,lettuce, chicken and thin slices of brie cheese along with a piece of johnny cake and butter.

The prices are a tad high but the food is good and the location is convenient.  Two pluses.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE SALAD?

Charming New England Town




Shelburne Falls is a small New England town that exudes charm.

You can read more about it here.

Going there is like stepping back into another time zone when things were simpler and lovely.


                                                                                           (Mosaic of Shelburne Falls, Massachusetts).

Come to find out, the movie, "The Judge," was partially filmed there.  



Have you seen that movie?  If not, try to check it out. It's such a good movie to see and will keep you guessing.  

It is also filled with surprises!

Anyway, there are potholes in one part of town, leftovers from glaciers long ago. 



Fascinating stuff.



And, of course, the Bridge of Flowers (posts coming up in the near future) and darling shops draw tourists during the nice months.




No matter how many times I go there, it's always a pleasure to return.



WHERE IS ONE PLACE YOU ENJOY SEEING AGAIN AND AGAIN?
