Ellie has live in her cottage since 1996, but has done wonders for both her home and neighborhood. This is a property you remember for so many reasons. Ellie is a delight to talk to and is very passionate about improving her neighborhood. An inspiration to many not only with her gardening skills, but her determination to see Buffalo grow and prosper, one garden at a time. Heck, many gardens at a time.
I had a chance to view the garden prior to Garden Walk Buffalo during Open Gardens. It is a much more relaxing time to shoot photos, but you will see gardens during the walk in upcoming posts. Plus I did visit many more during Open Gardens, so you will see those also.
The owner, Ellie in 2010, on her front porch talking with garden walkers. You can see people lining up to see the back yard.Next post on Garden Walk Garden Talk, coming on Wednesday, is another of my favorites, Mary’s garden. It is a larger garden, but every bit as full and colorful as this one. Mary’s garden has many unusual plants and is a delight to see. I will show some comparison images from 2010 too.
