National Garden Festival. Last year around 200 came by to learn more about the Festival -- from Open Gardens on Thursdays and Fridays; AAA garden-themed bus tours on Fridays; the Front Yard Garden Contest on Newman Place in South Buffalo; the workshops, speakers and other events; and the 15 great garden tours during the five weeks of the Festival.
We're expecting many of the Open Garden participants to attend, the residents & landscapers from the Newman Place contest, and many of the gardeners from all the garden tours -- nearly 900 gardens to see this summer!
Kerry Ann Mendez, author of two books on perennials, will be speaking before the party -- complete with a Botanical Gardens walk-through with Sally Cunningham (a Garden Rant hero). How can you say no to that?
Well, if you do say no to that, please at least come to the party!
