Heirloom Garden, up close and personal

As promised, here is a better look at the incredible Tinsley House, on the campus of Montana State U in Bozeman. The home was moved to this site about a decade ago and the gardens were planted with the appropriate heirloom varieties. Its all part of the Museum of the Rockies.

To see the slides in a bigger format, just click on the show. Also, you can see the captions by hovering your mouse over the slide.

    Thank you! The Tinsley House garden is amazing. I’m a fellow Hollyhock lover. 🙂

    CORRECTION: I do not know for a fact that the little sod roofed building is the original home. It might very well be the barn. My apologies.

  3. It’s hard to believe that’s part of a campus. It’s just beautiful. I love the gray-headed Coneflowers.

  5. Mary Ann,
    My great great great Aunt was Lucy Ann Tinsley who donated the house to the University. I have not been able to visit the Montana to see it in person. I love your photos and am wondering if you would be willing to email them to me. It is such a thrill to see it in your photos.
