Gene gardening by lakeshore
Gene Stratton- Porter, best-selling author, naturalist and photographer, purchased over 100 acres in 1912 on Sylvan Lake in northern Indiana and named it Wildflower Woods. Concerned with the loss of Indiana native wildflowers, she was determined to use this land to preserve them. This unofficial blog captures the restoration of the woods and garden at the Gene Stratton-Porter State Historical site.
