This weekend we hosted Canadian garden writer Ken Brown (not Buffalo's garden personality Ken Brown - his Canadian version!), and garden radio personality Bruce Zimmerman. Great guys, that REALLY know their stuff and were very complimentary of our gardens and gardeners. I hope they had a good time while here.
We got off to a late start, due to visits to the Buffalo & Erie County Botanical Gardens, the Erie Basin Marina Trial Gardens, Olmsted's Delaware Park Rose and Japanese Gardens, National Garden Festival's Front Yard contest, and lunch at a Belgian-beer-themed lunch venue, so I didn't get to all the gardens I'd wanted to, but they did get a whirlwind tour of Garden Walk Buffalo gardens.
We toured from 2:30-7pm. I can't thank Visit Buffalo Niagara for bringing them in for this "fam tour" (familiarization tour). And I can't thank enough the gardeners that allowed us to come through their gardens on a hot and hazy Saturday afternoon.
Here's a smattering of what they saw. You can see these same gardens, for free, in two weeks during Garden Walk Buffalo, June 28 & 29.
