It is FINALLY Spring here in Central New York! So over this spring break, I went on vacation with friend Talon, journeying west to Buffalo to see our new friends Sean, Charlie and Liz and to go sight seeing with them! So off we went for three days of adventure!
So.....Sightseeing in Buffalo, NY? Really? Buffalo??
Well, YES. It's got a lot of history and amazing sights to see!
This blog will be about The Buffalo Botanical Gardens there. A most beautiful set of Victorian Garden buildings, started in the late 1860's was developed. Can't you just envision ladies in long white lace gowns with Gibson Girl hairdo's wandering the grounds here?
You just don't see buildings like this anymore...
It may have been a grey day....but it was sure bright and cheery inside!
Flowers, flowers flowers!!
Easter flowers, lilies, orchids blooming everywhere!
Such colors are a DELIGHT after a winter of white....
DISCLAIMER TO ENTER THIS GREENHOUSE
It feels...so....unnatural....like plastic almost.
Shiny and strange...not "plant like" at all... for a plant.
The Godzilla Topiary almost ate Sean!
Check out this tree's bark...
Prehistoric looking, isn't it?
which are about the hardest thing, I have found...to grow..
Ooooh....a CHOCOLATE TREE :)
It felt SO good to be in a warm and beautiful environment...
This winter was so cold, dreary and harsh...
Here comes Peter Cottontail....hopping down the bunny trail...
A wondrous day's adventure with friends in a magical Victorian place!
If you get a chance to visit these Botanical Gardens in Buffalo, please do so!
