Gabri, I have read and reread the two books by Joan Marble about living and gardening in Italy, "Notes from an Italian Garden" and Notes from a Roman Terrace". I was born in the wrong part of the world. I should be a European.

Europe is true for you, gardens, architecture, lakes, historic streets, where the beautiful peeps at every corner, (until it is destroyed), not all comply with the dungeon and c 'and so be protected and not all adhere alas! nature that I love so much and not only, hope you can come and see for yourself! Giovanna marble I have not read, but I've heard. a salute to early

Gabri,

My husband and I did have the good fortune to live in Norway for 3 years, Germany for 5 and the Netherlands for 2. All of them in the North, but still a nicer climate than here. We did spend three summers in Majorica Spain. My husband was in Graduate school in Majorica the other years we taught in international schools.

Gabri, we lived in Stavanger not far South of Bergen.

Our climate in Minnesota has extremes that limit our plants a lot. In the winter it can be very cold -42 C in the summer hot 41 C. We do have oak and maples of the acidophilic plants we have rhododendron and azalea they will grow to 2 meters. It is to cold here for nyssa, most paniciflora and Parrot.

We do have lovely plants that grow here and there are even a few cacti that can live in our climate. I do not like winter, summer and autumn are wonderful.

zenpotter hello, but you live near canada?! -42 is the minimum you very much! I believe you do not love the winter! here we can reach the minimum at -7, the maximum +42 / 45 in recent years have greatly increased the maximum, I love the spring / autumn. I also have some beautiful azaleas! We tend to sour the base of sand and tap water to keep the plants a lot, here's the opportunity that can do the latter rain in April and October to review, if you're lucky! however, we have about four months of absence of rain. We have 5000 square meters of soil where there are many oaks maples including red maple, I'm trying with an Acer saccharum, I have several clematis, liquidambar, cercidiphyllum, cedar, beech, fir. and finally, a natural pond, which dries up in early summer. is certainly a chance that we have done for about 5 years, but we love so much this type of plant, it's like to dream of a future day a beautiful forest! hello soon Gabri
