Mary Ahern, whose floral paintings have graced the WSOAE outdoor shows for a number of years, is known for her actual gardening as well. Her recently redesigned garden is one of several on “Northport Blooms in June” Garden Tour on  Long Island.

Mary writes, “I am really excited about the upcoming Garden Tour sponsored by the Northport Historical Society this coming Sunday, June 14, 2009. I am doing a comprehensive redesign of much of my garden this year and I’m really looking forward to showing and talking about this work-in-progress….Since my garden is such an integral part of my life as an Artist, this redesign and rethinking plays itself out over many of my artistic endeavors.”
