    HI Jake

    Went on to Google Maps for Winchester. Thing that struck me over and above all the other facilities & attractions, is that you seem to have seasons - Winter, Spring, Summer, Autumn - over here in the UK, we have weather. It could be any month you like and we can get all 4 seasons in a day, or week. That's what I miss from my younger days - seasons.

    Anyway, it looks good. Enjoy.

    Oh, Ian, I remember seasons in England when we lived there in the '70's. Not great variations, but there was Winter, Spring, Summer (however short) and Autumn. Here in Winchester the weather is more varied. We usually get a good snowfall every year (a couple of years ago we got 42" in less than 24 hours), Spring is rainy, Summers are hot (35c to 40c), Fall is glorious because we have mountains on either side of the Valley with forests that turn beautiful colors.

    Of course, we do have days that seem to have all four seasons in one, usually in early Spring, but I think that happens anywhere there are seasonal changes at all.

    Patrick, Winchester is a the north end of the Shenandoah Valley. The Valley was one of two "breadbaskets" of the Confederacy, with fertile farmland, a river for water, good climate and good transportation (multiple railroads met in Winchester).

    Holly smokes Jake,

    I just did some googling on 'Apple Pie Ridge' and came across some reality ads for some houses for sale, and most are lovely large homes sitting on acres of beautiful land and selling for just a small fraction of what an equivalent place would sell for in this area. Just amazing.

    I'd say you're quit justified to do some bragging!!

    One last brag. A couple of years ago Winchester was named by Forbes magazine as one of the top ten places to retire in the US. But don't let that get out, or too many people will move here!

    Nice. Just as Victoria BC area has been a favorite retirement place for Canadians (and lots of Americans) for years, it had a nickname of 'the place of just about deads' but that has caused the real estate and general living prices sky high. At least in the major centers.

    A lot of retired central Canada (Ottawa/Toronto) and prairie folks seem to like moving out here.
    We also have actual seasons but usually quite mild in our Western "Wet Coast", one of the main drawing points.

    We were in Victoria last August for one overnight stay at the Empress. It was on her "bucket list" and we were going to be in Vancouver, so we took the ferry over, toured Buchart Gardens, proceeded to the Empress, had tea there in lieu of dinner, walked around the town until it was dark, the next day took a ferry to Anacortes to go visit some friends on Whidbey Island (used to live there). It was during the heavy forest fires, so the first night was glorious, but the skies after that were very smoky and strange. The entire area was marvelous and the gardens were well worth the visit. We would love to go back.

    toured Buchart Gardens
    And I hoped you enjoyed them as I worked there for forty years (maintenance and equipment manager) and actually lived in their "Waterfront Cottage" at the head of Butchart Cove for almost thirty.
    It's just north of the Japanese Gardens but hidden in among the trees.

    We're now living not far away (one mile maybe) in our home up on the hill and all retired. Darn trees have all grown up and are spoiling our view up Saanich Inlet.

    Yes, our wild fires throughout the province were one of the worst in recorded history.

    The gardens were amazing! I could have wandered around there much longer than we had time to do so. I'd like to come back each season to see the changes. Well-planned gardens like that have color all year long. I also appreciated that they used multiple shades of green so that even when the flowers were gone, there were color variations in the garden. The English are brilliant gardeners in that respect as well. Americans? Meh. Most of us are just happy to have grass.

    Well, as much as the owners would like to have lot's of colors all year 'round, it's just not possible with the climate here. At least outdoors, but a fair bit inside plants and color during the winter months are maintained.

    Well, the color can be shades of green in the winter. My wife swaps out things in our front garden during the year, even late in the Fall to have some color variations through the winter (Under the snow, sometimes, but it's there!).

    That is about all we're left with in our heavily shaded garden areas but my wife keeps trying her best but unfortunately the deer and rabbits just like eating most of the flowers and we're left with a few small splashes of color and various shades of green, trees and rock!!

    Anyway, I think I'm getting a bit off subject topic here.

    The rabbits were ravaging our crocuses in the Spring until we heard that flaked red pepper repels them. It works for a couple of weeks, so we get the huge gallon jars of it at Costco and sprinkle it as soon as the ground starts to thaw. Seems to work pretty well if you keep up with it until the bunnies give up.
