Pedals in Bloom floral art display returns for the season

May 19, 2024

Art in Bloom member Tony Boyd-Heron announced the Pedals in Bloom outdoor art piece has returned to the lawn along the road in front of the Beacon Inn, 520 E. Savannah Road, Lewes, for the summer season.

Beachgoers passing by can spot three colorful bikes overflowing with petunias, impatiens, coleus and more spring flowers provided by Rays Produce.

This is the second summer that the vibrant art installation has popped up on the east side of the Lewes-Rehoboth Canal drawbridge. The project is part of Art in Bloom, a subcommittee of Lewes in Bloom, whose mission is to enhance the beautification and cultural environment of historic Lewes and the community at large by means of public art. Last year, Boyd-Heron and fellow Art in Bloom members Dave Beck and Ed Zygmonski repurposed three donated bicycles – a tandem, a girls’ bike and an adult tricycle – by spray-painting and transforming them into an eye-catching attraction that houses living plants.

Pedals in Bloom will remain in place through the summer and early fall months before returning to storage for winter. The display is a great place to stop for a photo and appreciate the fragrant florals.
