Chanticleer was originally the summer home of the Rosengarten family of Philadelphia, whose pharmaceutical business eventually became Merck. It is now a beautiful, must-see, 35 acre public garden.

The following photos show only a tiny portion of Chanticleer.

Teacup Garden; note the ornamental use of edible plants (leaf lettuce):

I looked in a book I have entitled "1001 Gardens You Must See Before You Die" and was saddened to find no Indiana gardens listed there.
