Victoria of south central Indiana has created a special focal point.
"Sad circumstances often make for engaging changes. Three years ago our huge beech tree had to be cut down. It dominated the backyard and provided lots of wonderful shade for the patio. Since it was hollow from top to bottom it had to be removed but the wide base, about four feet in diameter, filled with zinnias, ornamental sweet potatoes, and nasturtiums now makes a great focal point. Planting out this new sunny area and adding to existing beds and renovating others in the back yard has created a lot of work for me but has been, and continues to be, an interesting challenge. I hope you enjoy the pics."
