Buffalo has Show Gardens galore…
You’ve probably been to or heard bout many of the popular Garden Walk Buffalo gardens…the Cottage District’s charming tiny houses, the Delavan Avenue’s grand Victorian (not on the tour this year!), the park-like calm of Arlan & Dom’s garden at the end of Norwood, Mary’s Garden, the kid-friendly and creative garden on Richmond with the tree house, the colorful garden tended by the colorblind gardener on Sixteenth Street, the bowling ball totem garden on Highland, the 15′ tall spherical Bucky-ball gazebo on Linwood, or the “it” garden this year at the intersection of Argyle Park, Potomac Avenue and Bidwell Parkway (with the beautiful posts!), and you may have even heard about my shed. All of these can be found in this post.
This is not about them
Here’s some other gardens worth checking out this weekend. Many are not where there’s “lots a’ dots” on the Garden Walk map (printable PDF here). Many have one overwhelming feature that makes it a dramatic garden. Many are just nice to stand in for a few minutes.
They all have in common the personality and charm of the gardener that lives in them.
You have more than 300 choices to make this weekend. Even the most intrepid garden walker will not see half the gardens on view. I think your best bet is to find the list on the map that reads Are you looking for anything in particular? On the list gardens are by feature – art/sculpture, natives, vegetable gardens, rain barrels, structures, wheelchair friendly, etc. I suggest to visit what interests you.
But, if you can, these might be a few good gardens to see if you’ve hit up the “big hitters” too often. And make sure to visit the gardens around them. I’ve not seen all the gardens and find new and fascinating ones every year.
Feel free to add your favorite Garden Walk Buffalo gardens (even if it’s your own!) in the comments here so others can explore them and fall in lust with them too!
