First stop: Anthony and Barbara DiMino have a fabulous garden at their home in Lockport. More than 1,000 lilies are the main attraction as well as a koi pond surrounded by native grasses. Their garden is on the Open Gardens schedule; residents welcome visitors to their gardens during certain hours on Thursdays and Fridays in July. When you're done viewing the gallery, you may want to visit GardensBuffaloNiagara.com to find locations for picking up an Open Gardens guide, $5, and to learn more about local gardening events.
