I could not get this close and not go.
It would be a bit like not going to see the pyramids in Egypt because they were 15 miles out of the way.
They are pretty dern impressive.
And no amount of tourist ticky tac could alter that. Actually the park along the river and to the falls was a pretty nice green space considering the volume of people who have passed through here over the decades.
The elevator tower and observation deck down to the Maid of the Mist boat ride was even impressive in its own right.
Niagara Falls fall.
Riverside weeds grew right up to the edge.
Looking back across Niagara Falls from Goat Island.
I heard an amazing number of languages coming from the tourists.
You know you are a real gardener when tiny flowers can still grab your attention in the presence of such force.
Maybe you could say Niagara Falls is one of the seven wonders of Buffalo, New York.
I promise to show the incredible gardens I saw during the garden bloggers confab, Buffa10 when I get back to the low spot on a North Carolina mountain top
