It's easy to say gardening makes you happy when the sun is shining and plants and crops are giving their all, and there's time to sit and admire your handiwork. But it's the 'getting there' that really makes you glow, in more ways than one! All the hard graft through cold, wet, dreary days clearing and sowing, scraping and painting, digging and hoeing. In your mind's eye you imagine how it will all look when it's finished. Planning, scheming and dreaming. And when it all comes together with an exuberant fanfare of colour and scent you can pat yourself on your back and say, 'I did that.' No wonder gardeners are such happy bunnies!
