Mary’s Garden on Buffalo Garden Walk

An urban gem.

I went to Garden Walk Buffalo on Saturday, the first day of the event. I only got to a few gardens before getting rather ill and having to go home. The weather was threatening rain, and I had left just in time as it started to rain when I got on the expressway.

I was the only one in all the gardens I visited that morning, which was very odd for this huge garden walk. I believe the weather was keeping people from staring out at 10 am, and the rain was expected to clear by the afternoon, which it did.

This garden is a very popular one on the garden walk, and usually packed with visitors each day. I was very fortunate to get to photograph it without the crowds.

You can see how well-appointed the garden is and that it has many very interesting turns and spaces. It is heavily planted and very well maintained.

The paths are winding and very intimate.

The house is an architectural gem part of a beautiful, historic neighborhood, one in which fellow blogger, Jim from Art of Gardening also lives. His home and garden are very beautiful as well, and Jim is the hard-working President of Garden Walk Buffalo. Go to his site to see if you are not familiar with his blog, but I know many of you are.

Hope you enjoyed.

    I really like the twisty turny paths – can make even a small garden something of a tour of discovery.

    Hi Donna
    The arbors are fabulous anchors throughout the garden as well as the Muskoka chairs. Her plants look as if they receive TLC daily. Wow!! What a gorgeous garden. Glad you made it there and got to take as many photos as you did before you needed to return home. Thx for the post.

  9. Wow! I will surely sit in that garden for hours. Those sights are really breath taking! WOW!

  10. What a gorgeous river of pure gold. One of the most dramatic images of this garden season, I think. Thank you so much for that and the accompanying pix, as well.
