Hi @Fairydell So glad to see you here. You are a fighter! You will get better. I admire your spirit hacking away at your thorn bush. I have a long list of Fall projects in our yard. Have to go slow, but it feels so hood to be productive again. Hoping this next month proves to be great healing for you. My 5th month brought lots of nerve and soft tissue improvements. Seem to be helping my stamina and strength. Keep moving friend it is truly restorative. Hope you like your gardens new look after battling the hedge!
