I guess that I still have some effects from a travel bug. Sure, I like to watch the videos of the pretty landscapes and urban landscapes but often I have felt like I was just looking at a picture when I have actually been there, especially if the view was through a window.
Something that interests me is what gardeners are doing in other places with climates similar to my own. How do they live their lives, what are their activities, what do they grow??? Of course, visiting during the growing season would interfere with what I do in my own gardens ..! Hard to make that compromise.
It is also a little awkward but I live in the "Empty Quarter." You know, the "Flyover Country." Well, it's kind of true for other places like this. They are not on many tourists' itineraries. It isn't really true - if you want to get some skiing in this winter, think about Schweitzer Mountain in northern Idaho
So, here's an idea! The Southern Hemisphere. The hill country of Tasmania might be about right. Or, here's a place and a picture that looks so much like it could be a location around here:
This is Nahuel Huapi Lake in the lake region of northern Patagonia, in Argentina. Nice, huh? Wikipedia often has climate information for many locations, worldwide. Dream a little!
