Mystery Picture Saturday --Chance to win free note cards

The answer to last week's mystery picture was Gene Stratton-Porter's home and grave site in Wildflower Woods in Rome City, Indiana.

Gene Stratton-Porter was an Indiana naturalist and writer. She wrote several really great novels; a couple of which were made into movies.

But her real love and where she left her true legacy was her love for Indiana's swamps, woods, wildflowers, and wildlife, especially moths. Her book on moths is a real treasure if you can find one and afford it. Recently, some of her books were put back into print by the Indiana University Press    

The Wildflower Woods property is worth the trip. Some really great times to go are May through August when the wildflowers and garden are in full bloom. The house gets decorated for Christmas and is absolutely stunning. A lot of hard work goes into maintaining and keeping this property as stunning as it is.

This weeks mystery place is another easy one; leave your guesses in the comments for a chance to win a set of Blue Heron Moon Note cards on the first day of spring:
