Fred Wiman, from Lewisburg, West Virginia enjoys the rewards of his landscape and gardening efforts.

"After I retired five years ago we moved to a new home on one acre of old pasture land in beautiful West Virginia.  In the first year, we planted over 100 young trees, but we left a space for a flower garden.  Now, five years later, we have a wonderful grove of trees, and I have a convenient place to indulge my passion for flower photography.  We also have a pleasant place for old folks to sit and enjoy the buzz of insects and the gurgling of water."
