Today’s pictures from the Botanical Gardens is their beautiful topiary!

The Buffalo and Erie County Botanical Gardens in Lackawanna, New York is just a beautiful place to visit. Originally it was the Lord & Burnham conservatory that opened in 1900 and is considered a national historic site, educational center, and a destination full of exotic plants and flowers from around the world! They have a dozen or more rooms each with a theme such as the tropical house where the temperature and humidity is properly controlled for the plants.

      It was amazing how tall some of them were – I cannot even imagine doing that. I am not that creative. I can’t even trim a regular bush. ๐Ÿ™‚

      They are so beautiful! I could not even imagine doing that. Some dinosaur would be losing his tail!
