Jennifer's Umbrella Stand
Jennifer's garden is another popular stop on Garden Walk Buffalo. Her garden is just brimming with great ideas. Everywhere you turn there's another great garden idea for inspiration.
Here, she's taken a plastic planter, fauxed he outside to get a patina of aged bronze and planted her table umbrella and a few annuals into it. It shades a sitting area of two chairs and two end-tables. I don't think she has much time to sit at all, but it's a brilliant little touch, making something ordinary extraordinary.
I will not say she has the most spectacular garden in Buffalo, each garden is unique and special in its way, but I can say that Better Homes and Gardens has shot her front yard, and BH&G's Garden Ideas and Outdoor Living photographed her back yard three weeks later. Both will be published in an upcoming issue sometime in the future. Garden Gate magazine has also photographed it and has used bits and pieces of it in their magazine(s). Cripes, it's even used in the Buffalo Niagara Convention & Visitor's Bureaus' publications and website.
