Pink tire planter? Why not. Once again, we're taking you along on the Buffalo Garden Walk and hope you find some inspiration today. I don't implement everything I see, just like I don't make every recipe I see on a food blog. But I get ideas. And I funnel them away for later. I don't even like everything I see. Some things seem tacky or just don't reflect my style. But tweaking them to suit my yard and my garden goals is fun. At the end of the day, I'm just trying to create a landscape that is a comfortable place to relax. How about you? What are your goals for your yard this year? Anything new planned?
Little Summer Street is a special place in Buffalo, NY. The words quaint and charming are an understatement. Adorable is more like it. Adorable houses. Adorable gardens. Hey, we can't all live on Little Summer Street but that doesn't mean we can't replicate their splendid sense of style. And you can probably guess by now that I never tire of succulents. This creative display just draws the eye and the homemade pots are fabulous. They are low maintenance but look so good! We were thrilled with Amy Komeneckys garden and her welcoming aura. She let my 3-year-old use her bathroom and gave her some bottled water!
Calm. Serene. Relaxed. That's how we felt visiting the Buffalo garden of Sarah Stanbury and Adam Kostenbauder. It was love at first sight with this succulent wall. Take notice of the succulents in the bottom wood planter as well. Succulents are the trendiest part of gardening right now. Stunning. And you won't believe what they've manage to do with such a small space in their backyard. A tranquil retreat. And did you know? More people visit gardens each year on garden walks than Disney World and Disneyland combined. That's more than Las Vegas!
The curvature of this front garden got our attention. Winding around this splendid front porch are these flower beds loaded in every shade of the rainbow color. And just wait till you see the backyard. The before and after makeover transformation is unbelievable. Amazing what can be done with a such small space. Kudos to Scott and Marge Goodman!
Large village lot with two gazebos an archway and lots of perennials including several types of hots, butterfly bushes, torch lilies, sedum and fifteen foot rose of Sharon.
Jeff and Cindy's garden is going on it's fourth year and their love for the Yankees is seen throughout
One acre of pure paradise, Julie and Dan have been working the ground for 16 years. Both their home and business, they're not afraid to recycle in order to make something new work. Hundreds of perennials are bursting with blooms while annuals are craftily added each year.
