Fifteen members of the Great Bend Garden Club enjoyed Pat Halbower's delightfully humorous personal account of the evolution of the forest of various trees, the ever changing flower beds and lawn, and the feeding of creatures, both winged and four legged, both wanted and unwanted, that have been the experience of the Halbowers over the past 40-plus years as they have worked in and enjoyed the outdoor spaces of their home.
