I know I have been saying that I always want the full truth. And I sure got it today. Happy Mother's Day. Sure.
I'm so sorry Addie...

Aw...baby bunny.

LOL Maybe I need to quit being so gentle with mine! You "hack" and I "pamper!"

It may be hard hearing the full truth, but I think she really needs to tell you this. It's probably better in the long run to know, and to be able to talk to her about it. {{{{Hugs}}}}

My step-children's mother died from Hodgkins disease. When she was sick, she told them not to come to visit her, but to wait until she was better and they could better enjoy their visit. She never got better. They were in their early 20s. I don't know if it was better than they didn't see her sick and their memory of her was of a healthy woman, or if they should have spent some time with her before she passed. Sometimes I think she knew she was dying and didn't want them to see her like that, but her family has never forgiven the kids for not coming. It was a decision between them and their mother.

This is a post about an old post about hydrangeas. lol

I clicked the box. When I clicked on the first reply (after the first mention of Hydrageas) it took me to a page full of replies with the original message at the top of my screen. Easy peasy AND a good tip, taxy. Later replies, depending on who quoted what don't always go back to the OP (about 'it').

Not that clicking on several boxes is that hard but it would be easier and more understandable if the post just referenced hydrangeas or the original post #.

Now I know a lot about hydrangeas, which I didn't really need to know because I've never planted hydrangeas, but I didn't know I didn't need to know until I knew what 'it' was about! A single word (hydrangeas) or post # would have made it all clear.

Not that I think this will change the way it's done here. Oh, no. My mama didn't raise any dumb children.

I was a guilty party in this and I apologize. It happens to me all the time. The first post isn't directed toward me and doesn't interest me enough to pay attention. Then after a few replies, it starts to get interesting and I have to go back and look for the original post and read all the subsequent posts.

Now I want to go out and look closely at my hydrangea to see what it's doing, but I'm still in my nightie!

No need to apologize-----please! Enjoy your hydrangea. Your plants won't mind if you're in your nightgown!

Nooo! I got dressed and went out. One of the old sticks has a couple green buds coming out. There is a lot of green down at the bottom of the plant, so it's still alive, but I don't know if it will get any actual flowers.
