I'm glad your garden walk was a success! I never get wine on any of the garden tours I go on! Congratulations!

Congrats on a most successful Garden Walk. It sounds great, and I'm envious of those who were able to attend.

Not boring at all! More pictures if you have them! You must have been busy with hostess duties! Nothing like a garden tour to get the garden spruced up!

I HEART Buffalo! This is "Jennifer" (actually Mischelle) from Northeast PA breaking my comment-less state to let ranters know how impressed I was with Garden Walk. The gardens were wonderful - at least the 100 or so I got to - and the architecture was diverse, but the people? Wow. The people of Buffalo were friendly and welcoming. Garden hosts and "walkers" alike gave great advice on places to eat and see during our visit. Oh yeah, and the city was super-easy to navigate and had great flow.

Thank you, Elizabeth, for blogging about this event and for being so gracious during our visit. We're definitely coming back for Garden Walk 2009.

If it's OK, I'll post again later today with a link to pictures.

Sorry, Mischelle--I have fixed. Please DO link to images, for our other readers. I honestly do not have many. I am hoping Charlotte and Ellen will have some of theirs up soon on their blog.

If anyone has photos to link to - I'll be adding all those links to the Garden Walk website so all other fans of the Walk can see them as well. I love seeing the Walk through the eyes of other people.

I'm back with pics from the garden walk. Here's the link:

Definitely worth the 200 mile drive - where else would you be able to browse 100 gardens in two days?

Thanks so much for posting the pics, MiSchelle--I bet it smelled good all over town, too...

Buffalo is one of the most beautiful cities in the world! And nobody knows it but the people who live there, Susan, and me.

I am one of the tourist from Florida.

Elizabeth- I saw your garden with Hal Leader.
Hal shouted for you, but you didn't appear. I have really wanted to meet you, another soul sister who likes wine with her gardening.

Loved your garden, got a fab pic of one our your orange lilies. Your mural is perfect, being a muralist and garden designer, all I have to say about is- perfect. See some more pics of your garden and many more at on the walk at

Buffalo is really blooming, walking the walk and talking the talk- An amazing feat.
Three cheers for the President of Garden Walk Buffalo, Jim Charlier and his army of beautifiers.

I left Buffalo fourteen years ago and now live in Tampa Bay Florida. On my most recent trip to Buffalo I saw many notable positive changes in the city's quaint neighborhoods. More cheers for the homeowners of Buffalo!

I biked to numerous gardens on Garden Walk Buffalo and was knocked out by what individual citizens have done to help beautify Buffalo.
GWB and Buffalo in Bloom have done more than add color to gardens. It appears that these projects planted strong seeds in the community; the harvest is rich now, seen in the proliferation of both strikingly beautiful gardens and exterior residential upgrades. A good virus- perhaps starting with simple projects like planting a few flowers, gaining strength with ambitious undertakings such as restoring elaborate wooden porches.
As garden designer (who also has a serious case of the "Flower Crazed Bug"), I came back to Florida armed with new ideas for the numerous beautification initiatives I am currently working on in the Tampa Bay area.
