I'm so glad your Tuesday Gardener (do you have a gardener for every day of the week?) is through the op ok. Send him my love!
Not called Mellors is he?
I'm the gardener
and care for several clients who are mostly too elderly or infirm to do their own gardens. I've been going to this one once a week for about 9 years as it's quite a large garden and very labour intensive. The gentleman in question is 82 and Ukrainian but his wife was born in this area which is why they chose to live here. I've got very attached to all my clients over the years and they're a bit like family!
