Pine Ridge Garden, a work of art
Visiting this garden is like stepping into a painting. It's too nice for words - so I'll keep those to a minimum and just show. Gardeners Gary and Kitty should be hosting painting events for artists. Their garden is so rich in texture and color it seems almost unreal. I can picture what it may have looked like when it was all grass. THIS is way more joyful!
This garden is part of the National Garden Festival's Open Gardens. You can see it on Thursdays and Fridays from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. TO get the $8 Open Gardens Guide, visit here for retail locations. More than 80 BUffalo Niagara gardens are open for touring on Thursdays and Fridays for the six weeks of the National Garden Festival.
This garden was also photographed by Garden Gate magazine in 2011.
The unassuming grass-filled front yard is teased by a hosta-filled path to the right of the house. As you walk the winding path more and more of the garden opens up until finally you've gone around to the far back corner of the house (their porch) and look back at the scene in the photo above. Enjoy. I did.
