I live in Limoges in the centre-west of France to an altitude of about 300 meters. The climate of Limoges is semi-oceanic, semi-continental, the minimal temperature in winter that I could observe is of -14C and the maximal temperature that I also recorded is of 39C. The climate is enough variable, in winter long periods of dry cold weather can be followed  by rains with very warm temperatures (15C), the spring is often warm and humid with some morning frosts and 20-25C in the afternoon, and the summer is rather sunny with hot temperatures, until 30C or even about 40C,  like this year. I join the photos of the city where I live in. I live in an apartment where I have a balcony to put my cactuses and I have a zone reserved for shelter  the  the cactuses in winter  to a temperature of 10 C. I protect my cactuses outside with a roof made of  Plexiglas in the spring when it rains too much. I hope to be selected for this test because the nature and the cactuses are my  passion  in particular for some years. I also like a lot astronomy and I observe the bugs, the flowers and the animals in general.
