Today’s photos are from Gwenn Mulligan. She says, “I’m a Master Gardener who has lived in Wyckoff, New Jersey, for 24 years. When we moved in, our yard was the eyesore of the neighborhood.
“As I struggled to figure what to do with this mess of a yard, I took many classes at the Bronx Botanical Gardens and then became a Master Gardener through Rutgers’ Cooperative Extension Program. Now I provide landscaping ideas to others in my area.
“My garden is always evolving. My favorite quote is, ‘If I stop gardening, I must be dead’. We have lost many plants over the years due to ‘right plant, wrong location’ and many more due to weather-related issues. We had over 14 large oak trees when we first moved in and have lost most of them due to hurricanes (famous and not-so-famous), turning our once-shady garden into semi-shade or sun.”
