Bench with Style


Part of visiting a place you are unfamiliar with is looking around and seeing the architecture, floral displays and touches of whimsey.



I took the photos in this post in Shelburne Falls, Massachusetts.

Shelburne Falls?  I loved visiting you!



The floral displays all along the main street are so incredibly beautiful.

There's even an entire Bridge of Flowers and we'll tell you all about that another day this month.




They make you want to stop and, well, take pictures for your blog peeps!

How about the bench with the boots?  Isn't it  the pizazz?


Even a simple geranium in front of one  of the shops was as pretty as a picture.



This green chair with ceramic chicken, on a sidewalk in front of a shop, was also eye-catching.


WHERE'S THE LAST NEW TOWN YOU VISITED?

I just HAD to pin that booted bench onto my Yard and Garden board. That. IS. Clever.

The Home and Garden tour I took on Saturday was my most recent foray into the world of flowers. It was a delight!

Bench is eye catcher for sure. I like that. I like when the town is so happy, happy alive with the Pizazz. Makes you want to go visit in the shops too.

Oh like that chair also.

I do like Pastel colors.

Oh Wow, I am so in love with that sunflower chair. Gives me ideas! Lovely flowers. Reminds me of a little town in Oregon called Cannon Beach. Love that place! Kit

Susan,
Your flower pictures are so lovely, and that bench with the boots is something else! How beautiful is the Geranium picture.

I love to visit charming old towns. Whenever I go to a town, the first thing I want to do is browse through the downtown. Such fun.

Love,
~Sheri
