Bridge of Flowers
This bridge was built originally in 1800's and has been restored bringing beauty and focus into the community. The community also supports it by subscribing to the flower boxes and decorating them for all to enjoy.
Website describing the bridge
On the way to a quilt shop in Simsbury CT we spied this lovely bridge and stopped the car for a wee walk
Would you enjoy seeing some of the displays? Apparently people have a sort of "garden plot" and decorate their boxes with their style flower display. It was wonderful!
Some people forget that historical and artistic places bring us humanity.
Our taxes support our culture, and provide much needed beauty to citizens, keeping our spirits up.
It's a good thing.
How drab life would be without national parks, without public art, without theater and dance and music.
These activities bring a richness to life, and are worthy of being supported.
Preserving our culture and history, our natural places like parks, all go to make us who we are.
How dreary and meaningless life would be with only work and profit and military might, with no national monuments, with no parks to refresh ourselves, with no culture to lift our spirits.
I am American and I am not alone in these opinions.
