Garden-induced Insomnia!

It happens every time round about now. From Spring onwards the insomnia begins! I'm sitting here like a pop-eyed zombie after having had about three hours sleep last night. Yesterday was fantastic though. I spent most of it in the garden..... moving plants to new spots in the garden, potting on in the greenhouse, sowing even more seeds, pruning, etc. etc. Before I knew it tea-time had arrived. Not to worry.... hubby had everything in hand and the potatoes were simmering nicely in their pan.

Then I made the mistake of sorting out a pile of gardening magazines to browse just before bedtime. I tried to go to sleep but ended up thinking of all the projects I have in store for the coming year..... a container bog garden with heavenly irises and a miniature water lily, adorning the shed roof with a living green carpet of sedums, turning over part of the lawn to a miniature wildflower meadow, deciding which climbing plants to train over the metal gothic gazebo (when we save up for it!)........ constructing a series of underground caverns and grottoes draped in lime green lichens and spongy bottle-green mosses. No hang on, I'm getting carried away here and besides, we live on a previously mined area which means the house and garden would probably be swallowed up in one great black hole!

Who said gardening was good for your health?!
