The Tame Garden

This is one of the few archival photos of Gene Stratton-Porter's "Tame Garden" in the Wildflower Woods. She planted thousands of native plants in the Wildflower Woods, but she also had a formal garden which she called her Tame Garden.

The photo was taken from the top of the garden, looking to the Cabin. AT the bottom middle of this photo, part of the rustic wisteria arbor that transverses the garden is visible. The flagstone walk under the arbor and the wisteria plants survive today and the rustic arbor has been reconstructed.
