The Buffalo and Erie County Botanical Gardens opened in 1900 in the 150-acre South Park Buffalo, New York. A little oasis in the city, Buffalo Botanical Gardens is definitely a place to visit during the spring as all the flowers are blooming. Beautifully landscaped and maintained, these grounds certainly make me miss living outside of New York and realizing the beauty that nature has to offer. These gardens feature exotic flowers and plants from around the world. Tri-domed glass conservatory building features 13 greenhouses; and the Victorian-style gardens of plants. It's hard for them to get too specialized, but they have a nice assortment of most types of plants you'd want to see. My favorites are the cacti and succulents and carnivorous plants.
Feeling overwhelmed from the city and need a break for a few hours? Go to the Buffalo Botanical Gardens. Explore these beautiful gardens on a nice spring day, when it's not too hot and not too cold and all the flowers are in full bloom. I really don't think I've ever seen spring beauty like I saw it there. I have some amazing pictures and a new found appreciation for the season.
