Mae and Jerry Sniezyk of Brighton have been gardening together for nearly 40 years and it is a collaboration that clearly works. Around the small pond Jerry installed in their backyard, “we have a large area of plants, trees, and flowers in our yard,” says Mae Sniezyk in an email. They have hostas, lilies, Joe Pye Weed, Little Henry Rudebeckia, Angel Trumpet, some hyacinth water plants in the pond, and more. Mae Sniezyk’s photo, “My Happy Place,” is this week’s winner of the Homestyle Garden Photo contest. She’ll win a free home or garden book. She’ll also be a finalist for the grand prize, a $100 gift card to English Gardens and a basket of gardening goodies. To enter your photo, go to photos or mail them to my attention at 160 W. Fort Street, Detroit MI 48226.
