When we have our meals we say, "Now where would we get a view like this, why go out to eat??" We are very content with what we have. It is not work to is our hobby and pleasure. We are located in Wisconsin, zone 4-5. Come join me, I would love to show you around our backyard.

"I bet the place wouldn't look like that without your green thumb, patience and hard work! Very beautiful! Just like you, I am also an avid gardener.
