Perhaps not literally but this funny thing happens to me when I go to bed at night and start thinking about the garden ..
I have had about 3 pages of lists to accomplish ... I made it almost half way through so far ... but every time I knock one thing off, I see another while my head is down to almost soil level.
How does that happen ? ... will it ever all be up to snuff ? .. am I doing things the right way ?
I have audiences ... chirping away at me .. a form of encouragement maybe ?
My "toddler" Tiger Eye Sumac is very showy and I think quite proud of it's leaves.
Then there are the Porcelain Berry vine jewels
The birds are feasting on them like delicacies to be savored ... the colour is what I savor !
Orange Velvet is still pumping out buds and I am trying so hard not to pluck them !
Then there is the happy coincidence of bright leaves on green foliage for contrast.
I am still wowed by My Monet Sunset ... I know it will be brilliant come Spring and garden season.
Last was another rose which I just had to take in the house ... the scent is divine .. the colour amazing.
I am not sure if it is Julia Child or JP Connel .... what ever the name, the smell is just as sweet !
.. this was just a break before I steel myself for more garden adventures ... more bulbs coming in the mail is incentive to kick my butt and do the work that has to be done !
I so want to see it pay off next Spring when the gardens wake up from winter.
