Lyn Rezabek of Julius St., South Buffalo, got into fairy gardens about four years ago. Her husband Bill suggested creating a raised bed for her fairy landscape.
Over the years, her collection of fairy items has grown, and they added three more raised beds. Now they have something of a fairy village.
You can see her fairy garden on South Buffalo Alive, a garden walk that will take place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday, July 21.
South Buffalo Alive includes more than 60 intriguing gardens that vary from beautiful poolside settings to decks with blooms, from ponds and waterfalls to veggie plots and train gardens. The donation is $2 and the tour is self-guided. Pick up maps at Tim Russert’s Children’s Garden, 2002 South Park Avenue, Buffalo, next to Dudley Library. Don’t miss beautiful landscaping in McKinley and McClellan Circles, Buffalo & Erie County Botanical Gardens and Our Lady of Victory Basilica.
Get some suggestions for plants to use in fairy gardens. Then take a video tour of the Rezabeks’ fairy garden below.
