What a treasure these conservatories must be during Buffalo's winters. Or on a rainy day like we had Friday. But we visited Saturday, with beautiful, if uncharacteristically warm, weather.

The perennial and shrub gardens outside were also beautiful. We didn't have time to visit the arboretum.

Love the photos, Xris. That fuzzy echeveria is as happy as I've ever seen one in the north, that's for sure! And it seems like I'm not the only person who is fascinated by budded hostas... I think I prefer them to the flowers, even.

I am in love with those shelves, and those knobs are fantastico! I am also a big fan of Purdy.~~Dee

BG: Thanks! The desert house was really something. I've got lots more photos to upload from this stop alone.

Wait until you see the photos from the home gardens of Mike Shadrack, Hosta madman. He must have thousands of them, strewn across acres.

Dee: Which shelves?

I can also imagine the hot houses with snow enveloping the exterior of the conservatory. In summer, it had a different but wonderful magic all it's own and you captured it.
