It’s April. The trees have leafed out, I’m enjoying my first cut roses from the garden and mulching the plants for the dry summer months. But I’m thinking about where I will spend the winter.
This will be a year of change; retirement and a move from the west coast to the midwest. Although I spent the first 21 years of my life in the midwest living through hot humid summers and cold brittle winters, I don’t know if I can re-acclimate to it 40 years later. So, thinking ahead, where will I spend the winter?
The world is a big place and the opportunities are endless. My optimum climate is in the 70’s with more sun than rain and minimal bugs.
