I've seen better days
Buffalo in Bloom used to be a real competition, but now they pretty much give anyone an award who has bothered to create a front garden. (You do have to have more than just a lawn, I'll concede them that!) All the same, their website happened to pass before my eyes this morning and it was fun to look at my front garden as it was when they gave me my 2008 BIB award. It is a little sign in front, while in the window you can see my Urban Roots poster. (I only have it up for a few weeks in the summer.)
As you can see, this is mainly foliage—the trees have leafed out, providing the usual dry full shade. Hostas need to be my friend. It must be somewhat earlier in the summer though, because the window boxes are not that full yet. For the heck of it, I picked another address at random from the 100s on the website, from a street I had never heard of. And I have no idea where it is:
South Buffalo maybe. Interesting, because they hardly ever include people in their shots. I like it for that reason.
