On today's episode of Poking Around with the Martins we visit The Bridge of Flowers in Shelburne Falls, Massachusetts. It's an old trolley bridge that connects the towns of Shelburne and Buckland that has been turned into a lush garden footbridge. It's open from April until October and something is always in bloom. We crossed on a gorgeous day in June and we highly recommend visiting if you find yourself in the area. You can visit the bridge's website to learn more and even to see what's in bloom when to help plan a proper visit. You can cross the bridge for free but the entire thing is run by volunteers for our enjoyment so don't be shy about dropping a little something in donation box.
Sean and I both enjoyed the bridge and took lots of photos. He was in tattoo-reference heaven with so many different flowers in so many stages of bloom.
We also both enjoyed the village of Shelburne Falls, With the Deerfield River running through downtown, the bridges, the little independent shops, galleries and restaurants, we agreed that it reminded us of life in Cork City, Ireland (the Ireland experiment of 2014). While you're there you can also see the glacial pot holes which were super cool to see too!

next time you go, you should check out the old candle pin bowling alley, that place is a time capsule into the late 1800s, so cool.
