down in North Carolina, and is sharing our second bridge-themed garden of the
month. She says, "My daughter's destination wedding was the weekend of
September 13th, just a few weeks ago, in Hickory Nut Gorge, North Carolina,
near Asheville. Going to and from wedding events that week, I just about
drove off the road gaping at the flowers along the
every time we passed by.
I wish I could have captured the beautiful panoramic setting for you. Massive
Chimney Rock (now a state park) looms upstream and Lake Lure is visible
downstream, surrounded by the Blue Ridge Mountains. The 1925 historic bridge is
155 feet long and 20 feet wide, and flowers are planted along its entire
length. It is truly the gateway to somewhere beautiful! I only had my cell
phone with me - sorry some of the most beautiful images are blurred."
