National Garden Festival

It’s a five-week-long event, Road Trips Gardeners, so there’s no excuse not to schedule an excursion to the National Garden Festival.

It takes place in western New York State June 14 through July 31, 2011, and there are more opportunities to see great gardens than you can imagine.

Other highlights:

Opening day takes place at the Buffalo & Erie County Botanical Gardens, 2655 South Park Avenue, Buffalo, New York.
