Sick Time

I have been off here for a bit .. over did it Friday when I went garden manic and set a record for going at it in the garden getting so many jobs done. I'm really glad things like moving Niobe in with Henrii .. they are going to make a lovely couple and if they bloom together at the same time .. well .. it will thrill me (how goofy is that ?) the red and white would be fantastic for Canada Day !
Moving Center Glow Ninebark out of the dry shady dungeon to a sunnier place .. hoping he/she will stretch out branches and "glow" for me in the back garden in the temporary home for now.
I took the whip and chair out to tame Engelmann Ivy .. OK .. ladder and shears .. now we can go out the deck door without being molested by green arms .. phew !
Bittersweet got a trim and even today I see more could have been done.
In any case .. the list went on and on and I wrecked myself ... good grief ! will I ever learn ?
Hoping to return in the next few days with more garden muse .... news ? : )
Thank you to the little garden crowd that sticks with me .. I appreciate you all !

Joy - I overdid it too :( But there's just so much to do isn't there?

I don't think your posts are coming through in Blotanical at the mo...

VP .. I think you got cut off in the middle of a thought girl !
My posts are probably not coming through on Blotanical .. I haven't changed my "feed" server yet .. sigh ! LOL .. You are right .. so much to do .. so little of us ? to do it with !

It's hard to say no when we get such pleasure from it! I live on ibuprofin these days... Hey, I get excited about plant combos, too.


Aunt Debbi/kurts mom said...

That is a very familiar story. Rest and feel better. We do miss you on Blotanical, but I will keep visiting on my own til it gets worked out.

I'm always thinking - back aching must rest - then I get distracted - happens every time! Will we never learn.

GardenJoy4Me said...

Easy ... that happens every darn time !.. distraction .. and my little eye spots something to be adjusted .. we are a strange lot aren't we ? LOL .. other people think this is work and we find it all consuming enjoyable fun ?

Debbie .. I went to Feedburner and did everything Stuart said to do to change the feed issue .. but heaven knows if I did do the right things ? Thanks for hanging in there girl : )

Gail ..I hate to think of what my liver is doing with all the Tylenol ? .. plants draw us in to their curious world and we are totally fixated .. I would never have believed it when I was much younger.

I don't think it's goofy AT ALL to be thrilled by a color combo. My friend Alan has Niobe, and it is one spectacular color for sure. Hope you are feeling better!

GardenJoy4Me said...

J .. you are so sweet ! Thank you : ) We seem to find such satisfaction and happiness when we experiment a little and cross our fingers for s wonderful outcome .. I haven't been out since Friday so I am a bit anxious to check on Niobe and Henrii .. to see how they are getting on with each other : )
Thanks for dropping by !

Who me? I NEVER over do it! Nope. (If you believe that, I've got a bridge I want to sell you!)

My legs are still sore even 2 days later. I didn't do much yesterday since I had a subbing job. I know it's knid of late in the year for that, isn't it??? Just about 2 hours until the monsters are off for the summer. I guess I better enjoy the stillness and quiet while I can!

Hey Cinj ... how are ya' ? .. once the kids/monsters ? are out no peace and quiet for you then ? .. It seems once you start doing things in the garden .. you are driven to set things right .. then bang .. OUCH ! LOL
