Keeping an eye on the neighbors

   Last week, we talked about how some people have noticed a trend toward their neighbors -- especially suburbanites -- rediscovering their front porches and yards, after years of living on their back decks and patios.

  Almost everyone who responded via e-mails or posts agreed that this is a good thing.

   One reader, however, pointed out that some people go overboard, making their front yards too much like their backyards with swing sets, kiddie pools, etc.

   It's always good to hear a different voice.

  This weekend will provide another opportunity to check out other people's yards -- fronts and backs.

   Garden Walk Buffalo takes place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. This free, self-guided tour of more than 300 gardens has received national attention and is truly inspirational.

   For details, check out or today's Garden Notes listing in the Home & Style section of The Buffalo News.

   Garden Notes also gives information on the North Tonawanda History Museum's fourth annual Historic Gardens Tour, which takes place from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

  Take notes and feel free to share your impressions.
