Last summer, while we were visiting my husband’s sister, we strolled through the formal gardens at the Indianapolis Museum of Art. Since I think it’s quite possible I might have to describe an estate with a formal garden in historical fiction someday, I took a lot of photographs as “just in case research.” Here are a few of my favorites:

Ooh, “Just in case” research! That’s fantastic. I never thought to call if that before.
Those gardens are beautiful. /understatement
It was incredibly hot the day we were there, but I wanted to see as much as I could.
Incredibly hot is my preferred method of weather!
It was super hot the day I saw the Elizabethan Gardens at Roanoke. I recommend those as well, they have a rose garden, and also much statuary.
Oh, another place to see if I ever make it back to the East Coast. I love rose gardens.
Nice! I love gardens. I have many, many pictures of gardens and sculptures. 🙂
I love gardens too. We live about half an hour from the Chicago Botanic Garden, which is one of my favorite places to go.
Definitely! It’s the best of both worlds; rose garden, with beach right there.
Lovely pictures. Hope you get to use them some day.
I kept a newspaper clipping of two very odd twins from England. I had no clue what I’d do with them but eventually they turned up in my medieval novel as a pair of witches.
I think I remember reading about that on your blog and thought it sounded fascinating. I love the serendipitous way that information comes our way!
