Bridge of Flowers - Shelburne Falls

On Wednesday, I went on a quilt adventure with my friend Edith who wanted to visit Quilts & Treasures, Inc. in East Longmeadow, MA.  It was a cute little shop in a very pretty part of our state. After a stop for lunch, we headed on to A Notion to Quilt in Shelburne , MA. Sad to say, this wonderful shop will be closing its doors this summer. According to a notice on the website, the building is being sold and the owners who are getting up in years have decided to retire. It's troubling how many quilt shops have closed in the last few years.

Our final stop was down the road at the Shelburne Falls Bridge of Flowers. The 400 foot bridge spans the Deerfield River and connects Shelburne Falls and Buckland. It's a lovely destination for a day trip. Here are some photos taken with my iPhone.


  1. Such beautiful peonies and that purple clematis. . .such a rich color purple! Peonies here are budded; so the blooms are not far behind!

  2. Gorgeous flowers and photos. It sounds like you had a good day trip. I'm visiting my grandson near Boston and must take him here when he's older.
