Before & After Buffalo Garden

Before & After (17 years)

I haven’t posted in so long! Busy summer of helping to plan garden tours, garden tours by bike, hosting bus tours, planning meetings for Garden Walk Buffalo, Open Gardens, The Buffalo-style Garden Art Sale, planning for the Garden Walk Buffalo 25th anniversary next year, co-writing a gardening book, and then there’s the work that actually pays me. That seems to never end (gratefully!).

I’ve been posting a few Before & After photos on the Garden Walk Buffalo Facebook page and thought I’d post one of my own. Here, there’s about 17 years difference.

Jim Charlier is an advertising designer/photographer/crafter with a serious gardening problem. He's co-written a garden design book featuring the funky, quirky and fun gardens by the gardeners of Buffalo titled "Buffalo-Style Gardens: Create a Quirky, One-of-a-Kind Private Garden with Eye-Catching Designs" (; he writes a long-standing garden blog (; led the largest garden tour in America, Garden Walk Buffalo; has written for, or provided photography for dozens of magazines and books; has made presentations and participated in panel discussions on garden design and garden tourism nationally and internationally.
