Gardening in winter in Buffalo
|Can you see it?|
This winter I'll be hunting down salvaged and used parts from my own house and a local reuse/salvage store.
I have kept busy with meetings on garden things. Garden Walk Buffalo is taking on the responsibilities of the National Garden Festival. Garden Walk Buffalo, the two day tour will remain the same, but the group will also work with the volunteers of the National Garden Festival to make their bus and bike tours, garden art sale, educational events, Open Gardens throughout the area, public space makeovers successful (and profit-generating!). We'll also help the other 14-16 garden tours in the area promote themselves. And put on an art gallery exhibition of works created in gardens last summer. There's never a lack of things to do garden-wise in Buffalo, even in the winter. Just not all of it is in the garden.
|The succulent frame is heading into its first winter. I may still get a shrubcoat or burlap cover for it, just to keep out the brutal winds.|
|Grasses are cut, layers of leaf mulch are laid on the flower beds.|
|Each year we let our pumpkins "melt" in the garden - composting slowly with a little help from the munching squirrels|
|The ever bearing strawberries look like they could still bear some fruit.|
|The hypertufa of sedums are waiting for some snow cover - but they're all still green.|
|I added the greenery to the window boxes on the front of the house.|
