Buffalo gardens and Lockwoods Garden Center

Respite garden for AIDS Community Services

It's been a great time in Buffalo visiting gardens, with fellow gardeners and garden bloggers, during Garden Bloggers Buffa10.

It's delightful to get to know many fellow garden bloggers in person, whether I 'knew' them before from their blogs, or not.

I love the sense of exuberance and celebration in the Buffalo gardens that we've seen and enjoyed the diversity of architectural styles in the neighborhoods and districts that we've visited (and am inspired by Garden Walk and the sense of community that it encourages).

Visiting the Buffalo & Erie County Botanical Gardens was delightful, both for the plants and the historic nature of the conservatory.

I could barely restrain myself from buying LOTS of plants at Lockwoods, an excellent garden center with an impressive diversity of plants.

  4. Exuberance and celebration is a good way to describe the gardens of Buffalo. They certainly buoyed my spirits. I was able to limit myself to only 1 plant at Lockwoods by reminding myself that whatever I bought had to fit in my suitcase.

Please share your thoughts. I enjoy hearing from fellow nature observers, as well as whomever else drops by.
