Gardening, happy and sad

Monty Don once described some of the emotions that as a gardener you will feel, happy that your plants are doing well, happy that your veg is ready and on the boil, happy that your summers are spent eating all your fruit, happy that your garden is full of life and enjoying all your efforts. Flip the coin, sad that your plants have been destroyed by slugs, greenfly and other garden nasties. Sad that your plants are unwell and no matter what you do they are doomed. Prehaps your just sad that no matter what you do, a plant just won't take, your seedlings die or your bedding plants just wilt the day after you planted them.

Sad I lost my potatoe crop to blight, happy I have had a bumper crop of strawberries, gooseberries and blackcurrents.
