Bullfeathers is a Garden Walk Buffalo sponsor and is not only ON the Walk, but the owner’s home on Lincoln Parkway is also on the Walk this year. They’re going all out this year.

Bullfeathers is a Buffalo institution (I’ve been going there since my first week at Buff State in 1980!). Come and meet Garden Walk committee members and Garden Walk gardeners, as well as other Garden Walk fans!

If any of the above sounds good to you, please be there! Will we see you there?

I have a long-time garden blog, a popular garden on America's largest garden tour, and have co-written a book on garden design titled, "Buffalo-Style Gardens: Create a Quirky, One-of-a-Kind Private Garden with Eye-Catching Designs" When I'm not doing all that, I am an advertising designer always out looking to design things to promote your business.
