On the go again…
The 7th annual Lancaster Garden Walk was held Saturday and Sunday. I scooted off this morning for a quick job meeting, then did not get to the Walk until noon. Just like yesterday, not the best time for shooting great photos. Sometimes there is no choice, so you make do. The image above was one that I had to shoot because it says a lot about the beautiful little Village with over 50 gardens participating. The day was sunny and cheerful and I picked up my map at a fun little deli.
People were going from house to house, stopping to chat to strangers along the way. This town seems to slow down a bit and ‘smell the roses’. Just like above, a small snapshot in time. Any time, but not anywhere.
The walkers in this image were so friendly and helpful, telling me where to get a map. They even stopped in their car when they saw me on the street a little later to make sure that I found a map.
I followed the directions and went to so many flower-filled gardens. Here are a few.
Very inviting entries.
Even the architecture was interesting. Just love it. Don’t you adore this paint selection? Their back yard was so big, I would die for this amount of space.
Well, next week is the Buffalo Garden Walk. The big kahuna of the Festival. A friend called to ask to go with me. So next week, my Jeep has two.
On Friday, I am going to A Garden Symposium in Buffalo to hear Siobhan Nehin, Queen of the Garden Fairies speak. I can not wait. There are four speakers for a day long event. We are also going to see a group of Garden Fairies demonstrating the art of making personalized garden mementos. I will surely take some photos at Forest Lawn, the grounds are exquisite.
