Kind words from Canada...

altOn the garden blog. allanbecker.gardenguru, Montreal garden designer, consultant, lecturer and writer Allan Becker says of Buffalo's gardens, "Have you noticed the Buffalo style gardens that have been evolving in western Upstate New York? This type of gardening is considered by some to be an original American contribution to urban landscaping. Although the style pays homage to Romantic English gardens, its unique and distinct local flavor sets it apart from other gardening idioms. Cultivated in a very cold part of the USA, where winters are severe and the growing season is short, its development is just short of a miracle. That so many residents of Buffalo have successfully embraced this style to make it their own is a phenomenon."

And this is only a small portion of what he writes f Buffalo's gardens. To read his full blog post, visit here. Leave him a comment if you've been on the Garden Walk before, or if you have a garden on the Walk!
