Terry Chance's garden is whimsical, colorful, and charming.

"Here are a few pics of my garden this year.  We have had a nice summer so far with enough rain to make everything so pretty.  I started gardening around 1990 but really in earnest when the pergola was built in 1999.  It sure helps to have a focal point when planting a garden.  I live in Kansas where the weather is very unpredictable."
