I live in a new subdivision, it has a lovely biking and walking trail nearby and the neighborhood is great, but the trees are only about 5 to 10 years old, so not much shade when you go for a walk. We have started driving downtown to the old neighborhoods where the 100 year old trees do their job so well. There are some real gardeners in Iowa City and I love these kind of wild overgrown front gardens--I do not have the gardening touch, I have to do everything in pots as I just am not good at taking care of things after they go into the ground. In the meantime, I do so enjoy everyone else's labors!
