Officially dedicated on Oct. 19, 2013, the Lake Lure Flowering Bridge blooms on the historic 1925 Rocky Broad River bridge in Lake Lure, NC. When the bridge was closed to traffic in 2011, a group of interested folks got permission to use the bridge and together created gardens on the 155-foot bridge and along a pathway at both ends of the three-arch span itself. With an emphasis on native plants, their mission was to create a "Gateway to Somewhere Beautiful" for the enjoyment of the public. And, that is just what they did!
This incredible one-acre space with its 31 individually themed gardens is lovingly maintained by a group of about 40 passionate volunteers, several of whom were there from the beginning. They are known as the "Friends of the Flowering Bridge." The organization is a 501(C)3 and is sustained by donations from the Friends, partners, residents, and guests who visit and enjoy the Bridge.
Members of the Lake Lure Artists have hand-painted and created a collection of unique and enjoyable suns. With a few exceptions, they are built from plywood and meant to decorate your home or garden. Their longevity will depend on exposure to the weather.
Visitors have had the chance to enjoy them in the gardens. We are now pleased to be able to auction these one-of-a-kind pieces as a FUNDRAISER for the Bridge. Not only will you support the Bridge as a bidder, but you'll also have a piece of art (or 2 or 3!) to enhance your gardens, too.
"Here Comes the Sun!"
We encourage you to bid while you're in the area or from the comfort of your own home. Don't let this opportunity pass you - BUY!
