A Visit to Bruce’s Garden – in All Its Summer Glory
in Wyndmoor, PA

The triptych of photos above show a section of Bruce’s garden, with each photo showing his garden trellis from a slightly different angle. Glorious summer colors all around. But photos don’t capture the garden scents, the insects, the birds, etc. So, plan to join us on July 17th to fully experience Bruce’s summer garden in person.

Bruce shares a brief history of his garden: My mother was an avid gardener, and I was involved in her gardening activities growing up - digging beds, weeding, being sent into the forest to find and bring back woodland soil that would nourish her plants. As a teenager, I worked two summers as a gardener on the Rosengarten Estate (now known as Chanticleer Garden in Wayne, PA).

I moved to my present house 37 years ago. There were lots of trees and no gardens. The trees came down gradually either by my hand or on their own. As trees were removed, gardens began to emerge. Upon my retirement, I enrolled in the Penn State Master Gardener Program. As a result of that experience and education, over the last six years I have gravitated to a garden more dedicated to native plants. It has been a process!
