Bridge of Flowers – Summer 2018

On Monday afternoon, Carol & I took a drive around western MA. One of our stops was in Shelburne Falls to walk the Bridge of Flowers. We had been there in the Spring of 2015 and wanted to see what was new and different. Beautiful, creative landscaping. God’s palette of colors was on display.

Wild tulips

We saw the wild tulips of the Steppes region. Since I was more familiar with the organized, well laid out fields of the Skagit Valley in Washington, I was surprised to see tulips growing in the wild. There were red ones, smaller yellow ones, and then tiny white ones. I was even caught trying to take a picture. Beautiful.

In the shade of the old apple tree

Today we took a drive to Outlook Farm, a U-Pick apple orchard in Westhampton, MA. We didn’t pick any fruit, but we did go for a stroll in the orchard and enjoyed the flowers, pumpkins, and gourds around the store.

Bridge of Flowers

This morning, Carol and I drove north to Shelburne Falls, MA, to view the Bridge of Flowers. Admittedly, I expected a bridge you drove over that had a few flowers on it. Instead, it was a walking bridge covered with flowers. God’s beautiful palette of colors was on display reflecting his creativity and glory.

Spring fashions on display

This morning, we journeyed to Northampton to visit the Botanic Garden of Smith College. This week is their annual Spring Bulb Show. Though it is still winter outside, God’s beautiful palette of colors is on display inside.

Stanley Park in Westfield

I spent my “think time” at Stanley Park in Westfield, MA. In addition to being a good place to sit and think, it was a feast for the eyes–rose garden, Asian garden, wildlife refuge, walking paths, soccer fields, tennis courts, children’s playground, duck pond, Koi fish, bridges, water wheel, and much more.

We have several hostas in our backyard. One in particular is bursting with blossoms.  God’s creativity is on display!
