We live next to a lake in a nice Victorian home. I enjoy growing roses and flowers and flowering bushes and a a few vegetables. It can be really difficuult at times with the high winds off the lake, with the plants bending almost to the ground. One huge Oak tree next to the water seems totally unconcerned by the wind...it stands sturdy and tall with hardly a branch moving.

I am also enjoying my new hobby of bird watching and trying to recognize birds by their songs and calls. I hear many more birds than I see. As a musician, I enjoy this.

My problems at the moment are rabbits eating rose bushes, and the coming of the Jap beetles. I know they will be here soon!!

I live in: United States

My zone is: z6 MI
