A Hamburg Garden
No, not a garden of hamburgers. A garden on the Buzz Around Hamburg Garden Walk. It was held on Saturday and Sunday, July 14 & 15, 2011. Hamburg is a small town just outside Buffalo. There were many nice gardens on this tour, which I'll cover in the future -- I have all winter to show garden photos!
This garden was a surprise -- because I knew the owners! But going into the garden I had no idea it was theirs. This is a garden I'll keep coming back to to see what they've done. And see what ideas I can
|They purposely chose this narrow ally as the entrance for visitors so
only a small, |
but beautiful, portion of the garden is revealed.
|I loved the use of multiple market umbrellas defining the "living area."|
|They bought the periwinkle pylon at the Buffalo-style Garden Art Sale I helped organize!|
|I loved the way the patio furniture went so well with the banana tree, color-wise.|
|Nice, or what?|
|The banana tree drew the most questions and attention.|
|Encouraging visitors to walk through that narrow alley between house and garage made people |
ooooh, awww, and gasp when they rounded the corner and the whole garden came into view.
|Visitors taking advantage of plentiful seating area.|
|Vegetable garden was all in pots. This may be the answer to all my vegetable garden problems.|
