I couldn’t wait to start showing you Buffalo’s gardens. Yesterday evening, on our way to meet one of our hosts, Elizabeth Licata of Garden Rant, we visited several urban gardens. This garden smelled heavenly with a single magnolia still in bloom and banks of lilies. I have pink lilies and bee balm in my garden too.
We saw plants I do not have like this amazing echinacea glowing in the late afternoon sun.
When we arrived at the beautiful Twentieth Century Club I saw plants I did not recognize. Acanthus leaves are much used in botanical decorations, but I did not recognize it in real life.
And here we are beginning to gather in the shade of the Twentieth Century Club courtyard where we had a fabulous dinner. What beauties and new friendships will tomorrow hold?
