Honeysuckle by the back door

Honeysuckle by the back door

It just struck me this morning how having to read Garden.ie journals has become the equivilant to sitting down to read the daily papers - something I never had the real urge to do except occasionally or getting a good book out to read before heading off to bed. The latter rarely happens now because by the time I've checked up on who's done what it's long past bedtime. Is there a cure for this addiction?

Margaret one of my riders yesterday who's keen on gardening veg, said gardening is me time. It's certainly less depressing than reading or watching the news and we all need something to be take us away from reality now and again.

Well back to reality I hear the washing machine bleeping so it's out to the line hope the rain stays away and then I'd better do some house work much as I'd prefer to be outside but from all rooms I have views over the garden.

I agree. Ornamental gardening is a great fantasy escape.

Yes, without gardening I think I would be gone mad. Great way to keep sane.
