Progress continues in development of the Chimney Rock end of the Lake Lure Flowering Bridge gardens. The first arbor is coming together leading to the atrium. These elements of iron and native woods are designed to fit appropriately into the natural beauty of the Hickory Nut Gorge. Local artisans Steve Sane and Robert Yellico are lending their talents and expertise to create this added space to the gardens. With careful attention to budgets each element is added as we have the funds to support its building. Find out more about Lake Lure’s Flowering Bridge www.lakelurefloweringbridge.org.
