Buffalo and Erie County Botanical Gardens grateful for spring exhibit

Posted at 8:18 AM, Mar 27, 2018

The Buffalo and Erie County Botanical Gardens are showing off their newest display of more than 22,000 bulbs this spring.

The colors and the scents of thousands of flowers fill the multiple houses at the gardens. Each house is decorated in a different color scheme. Hanging over the plants are hundreds of gratitude flags, inspired by Tibetan prayer flags. 

On the flags, employees, volunteers and visitors have written messages, highlighting who they're grateful for or why they love the botanical gardens.

Hundreds of hours of work go into maintaining the gardens, with flowers changed out every week to insure fresh blooms are available for visitors.

In addition to the more than 22,000 flower bulbs on display, there is also a 4-H farm, featuring baby bunnies, pigs, chicks, ducks, sheep and more! The farm is open daily from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The Easter Bunny will visit the gardens March 30th and 31st from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Admission is $11 for adults and $6 for kids. You can find more information here.
