Door County is 5A ... huh?

We just got back from a 4-day trip to Door County in Wisconsin. I've written more about the trip here on my personal blog, Crazy Rosie Ramblings.

The Inn we stayed at -- the Blacksmith Inn -- is such a lovely, quint place in Bailey's Harbor and right on Lake Michigan (i.e. the quiet side of the peninsula). They also had an abundant of plants growing and in bloom that I was shocked -- shocked that my yard, 5+ hours south, doesn't have this array of color. Then I looked up that it is 5A, just like me in the western Chicago suburbs. Crazy, right, to think that 5 hours north wouldn't change the garden zone, yet it shows the power of The Lake.

Here are some photos of the Blacksmith's Inn front gardens.
