Mums at the Botanical Gardens – November 6, 2016

My favorite show of the year at the Buffalo and Erie County Botanical Gardens is the Mum show each October and November – the colors and shapes are astonishing, and the photo ops are awesome. This year’s Mum show runs through Sunday, November 13, which coincides with the upcoming Fall Orchid Show, Saturday and Sunday, November 12-13 (included with admission).

Next up at the Botanical Gardens: the Poinsettia show and Garden Railway Exhibit, running November 25-January 8 – find out more about these and other shows in the new year at
