  1. Hi Jay, thanks for allowing me to use your gorgeous photo! WNY is definitely a great destination for garden tourism.

  2. Thank you for feathering my garden with the Williamsville Garden Walk. Wonderful website with all the garden event info and tips for the public and also a great platform to help unifying our local gardening communities. We have had visitor from Germany and Australia during the garden walk in the past, and we have friends coming from Massachusetts to do a garden tour this year, WNY have become quite a garden destination!
