Hello Sue,
Thanks for all the info.
At Home Depot the kid in the nursery dept. said Indian Hawthorne was a fast grower. A lot they know I guess.
My regular Gardner. is the one who tells me fertilize often. I will cut way back, and tell him too much fertilizer on the bushes is not good.
His answer to everything is more water and more fertilizer.
His helpers do not understand English,so I must stay outside and watch them, as they are known to pull flowers and leave weeds.
It’s a common problem with the gardners in my area.
Yesterday, Saturday had a burst of energy. I cut roses for 2 hours, trimmed some tree branches, vacuumed half the house, and washed floors in 3 rooms.
Today, it’s laundry, and more rose trimming.
My niece is staying with me, and helping to get stuff ready to take to charity. Us Americans have so much stuff,it’s time to give to charities, so they can get things to those less fortunate.
I’m a big believer in donating, to help others.
Hope your thumb is getting better.
Thanks again for all your good advice.

@funcountess, Wow! You Did accomplish a lot on Saturday. Very, very impressive. Completing just one of those many physical tasks would have had me fluffing my feathers. It appears you have more energy than one spunky gal needs so how 'bout ff some of your excess ??? Address to follow. Thank you! Smiles

I agree and wish I'd thought years ago to buy or invest in some of the off site storage units that are so profitable for those who own them. VBG! So many of us don't understand the terms: "wear it out" or "use it up" but instead fall eagerly to advertisers' ploy of "you Need this" or "new and improved whatever". Our donation centers are not yet receiving items but I keep adding to my donation bags for when they do reopen.

@sueinmn, Sue's gardening advice has helped me too. Another added benefit of this wonderful Connect forum, yes?
