Steve's shade garden
|Where Steve sits to watch his garden grow.|
One of the best seats on Garden Walk Buffalo,
not that anyone sits during the Walk!
Steve's garden can be seen on Garden Walk Buffalo and on the National Garden Festival's Open Gardens Thursdays (check the link for location and open hours.
His house is only about five houses away from mine, and every time I visit it, I am startled by the massive number of plants in the small space and the variation on the color green throughout the yard. He's got a keen sense of color, texture and placement of plants. As with any Buffalo-style garden, there's artwork incorporated into the garden, garden art and some found or "repurposed" art, as well as the occassional fossil to look for.
There are many larger and splashier gardens on the Walk (there's 384 this year!) but this one is one of my favorites. Don't tell the others.
