The Walk Begins

Buffalo Garden Walk - lilies

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.

Echinacea 'Papaya'

We saw plants I do not have like this amazing echinacea glowing in the late afternoon sun.

Acanthus

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?

  • Thanks so much for sharing this, Pat! I saw a photo of the same lilies and bee balm on Cindy’s post this morning. Wish I could be there, but I’m going to enjoy the trip vicariously through yours and others’ posts about Buffalo. Hope you are having a great time…but, of course, in the company of garden bloggers, I know you will.

  • It sounds like you had a great time. I mean, what’s better than the combination of bee balm and a fabulous dinner?
