Master Planting Plan by Dan Kiley
This blue line drawing is of the Miller House & Garden master planting plan by Dan Kiley. The photo from the Indianapolis Museum of Art shows one of the garden’s most noted features: the Honey Locust allée (Allée is French for, “a walkway lined with trees or tall shurbs.”) on the west side of the house. You can see the allée illustrated as a line of dots and overlapping circles, indicating where trees were to be planted, on the left side of the drawing.
