Here are some of the most-asked questions during Garden Walk Buffalo this year:
|Q. Do you take this down for the winter?
A. No. They’re winter-hardy succulents and sedum. They need winter. It does get covered with cloth.
|Q. Do you bring in the mirrors over the winter.
|Q. What are the trailing vines?
A. Variegated creeping Charlie.
|Q, Where did you buy the terracotta pot lights?
A. I made them.
|Q. What glue did you use to make the glass flowers?
A. I don’t know. I didn’t make them. I bought a few and others were a gift, from a friend that makes and sells them on Etsy at Art Glass and More.
|Q. What’s the meaning of the Shrieking Shack?
A. If you don’t “get” it, you’re a Muggle and I can’t tell you.
|I did put out magazines and newspaper articles that featured our garden on the potting table.|
|One last minute project I eked out was adding lattice trellises to either side of the shed bay window. I’ll try and find a marked-down climbing vine this fall at end-of-season nursery sales.|
|It did briefly rain at the get-go on Saturday, but it didn’t stop intrepid garden visitors.|
|And here’s my two favorite things to see in the garden – my wife/groundskeeper (left) and garden writer Sally Cunningham.|
