Fall Ride To Shelburn Falls , Massachusetts

Who knew there would
be so much garden color
in the middle of
October ?
These beauties above were
bought at a lovely roadside deli
and country store near
the Bridge of Flowers.
We took a pretty Fall
ride last weekend to
Western Mass
and stoppped at
many places along
the way.
Our destination was
The Bridge of Flowers
in Shelburne Falls
where we were
married a little over
6 years ago.

I never expected to see such

beautiful color still going

on in mid October !

The flowers were still
thriving.

To think that all of this

was almost all washed

away with the massive

floods the little town had

during hurricane Irene

this past summer !

The bees are
still lovin' it all too !

Simply beautiful. So much art in nature.

Go out for a ride and
soak up some of this fall splendor before winter is knocking at our door. Posted by Picasa

I love your photos of the Bridge of Flowers! It still looks as beautiful as ever! However, I see you didn't mention that other place (the one I haven't been to yet). I was hoping for a peek!
Enjoy your Saturday.
