1: My Wichita Garden designed, grown and loved by Lynn Denzin 1451 Glenwood Court Wichita, Kansas 2002 - 2006

2: We moved to Wichita, Kansas from Yorkshire England, where I had fallen in love with the English countryside. I wanted to recreate that cottage garden look in my new backyard.

3: Live , | Laugh , | Garden .

5: So we planted a lot of trees. | (and a lot of memories.) | However, I didn't realize we had moved to the open prairie where the sun and the drying winds made the summer heat so extreme. Most of all, we needed some shade. . . . So we planted a lot of trees.

7: lilly | cat mint | weigela | black eyed susan vine

9: . . . and then a little bit of everything else. I came to love the nasturtiums and the Boston ivy. But most of all, I loved the hyacinth bean plant that grew like a jungle up our deck and produced so many beautiful bean pods by summer's end.

10: Lablab purpureus (Hyacinth Bean) Just a few beans thrown on the ground and several weeks later it is the perfect flowering vine.

12: of an icy winter

15: and despite the extreme temperatures

18: my garden was finally blooming into the English cottage sanctuary I had imagined four years earlier. At last I had my special place where I could retreat with a cup of coffee and relax.

20: and then we moved away.
