Northeast Indiana might give gardeners a challenge with its hilly terrain, but Tamara is meeting that challenge with beautiful blooms. Let's take a look as she shares her gardens with us.

wonderful! The pic right after the pic of cherry stump with clematis----what is the red flower just below the window?
With your house built into the slope, I would imagine that would really help with the heating costs?

Hillside gardening at it's best. Your integration of stoneworks is magnificent.
Nothing that's been done can ever be changed.

I agree
It made me want to come to your house with a chair and just keep moving it around and take in all the sites. Beautiful Tamara.
I really love the idea of using old ladders as trellised.
Oh, and I really love all the rock work. Next to plants, rocks are my second love out in the yard.

huggergirl, we just got 2.5 inches on Thursday and another .1 last night. Very humid outside but boy does it feel good just knowing why it feels that way. Until then, we hadn't had but one measurable rain (.25 in) for I think two months. I don't thin the plants are taking a deep sigh of relief!

Glad you are seeing some relief too. Have a great Sunday!
Vickie
