On my return home from the Berkshires, I got distracted and ended up in Shelburne Falls. It was a happy wrong turn, as I had always wanted to stop at The Bridge of Flowers when I'd taken this route before, and never quite had the time. It remained a pitstop in my mind's eye. What a delightful wrong turn. Thousands of bulbs and plantings on a trolly bridge rescued by visionary Antoinette Burnham who saw it's potential. The town of Shelburne Falls is a step back in time, a good place to stretch your legs, have lunch and do a bit of shopping before you drive back to reality recharged and ready for what's ahead.
