Garden Tours: Indygardengal, Veronica Bowling

Posted by @Sharon on
Welcome to All Things Plants: Garden Tours. Each week we'll take you on a tour of the lovely gardens of one of our members. Join us now as we travel to Indiana where Veronica will take us through the gardens she has created. You are going to love what you see! (Be sure to click each image for an enlarged view.)


This week we get the treat of peeking into an Indiana garden at a farm owned by Veronica (indygardengal) and her husband. You are in for a treat of color and texture, sun and shade, and garden art with tasteful whimsy!



The property is a farm and it is 196 acres. My DH mows quite a bit. We used to have cattle and a grain operation. Now we have grain but we rent it out.

I'll start by showing some of last year's pictures.

A picture of the orange, white and blue section of the front garden. Not much orange here as the California poppies are just starting.


Last year was a year of heat and not much rain. When I look back, the pictures were all taken early in the season. Guess that is good so I don't remember the times when everything was all dried up.

 What a beautiful tour, Veronica! You have so much space and everywhere we look there's another wonderful garden. Your love of plants, your creative use of color, it's all evident in your images. And we particularly love your garden art, how striking!

Thank you so much for taking us with you through your gardens. What a fun trip!


We hope you join us again next week as we take another tour through the garden of one of our members.
