Before Garden Walk Buffalo, the event sponsored Open Gardens which were held on Thursdays and Fridays during the National Buffalo Garden Festival. These are images taken at a popular garden on Norwood on a very overcast day.
Those that would not fit in a natural manner are tied and staked to maintain a vertical form. Both the Russian Sage and the Butterfly Bush are standard sized plants, but both were contained by confining them to the space.
The tiny rural town is found on one side of the home along a very nice path. It is constructed of moss, stone, wood and miniature live plants to replicate trees and shrubs.
It is one of my favorites, and I bet yours too.
