Would you please replace the current Buffalo CALENDAR info for WNYIS as we have updated information:

Western NY Iris Society usually meets1-4pm the first Sunday of the month at the Julia Boyer Reinstein Public Library, 1030 Losson Road, South Cheektowaga, NY 14227. Guests are welcome. Programs include information about acquiring and growing irises (bearded & non-bearded) and complementary perennials; our annual judged iris show, & a summer iris sale. During months when irises are blooming, we have garden visitations. All events are temporarily on hold. Marilee Farry, 716/668-1789; 

Thank you so very much! Upstate Gardeners’ Journal is a valuable resource for area gardeners, and we appreciate all that you do to make it informative and interesting.
