All from one pot? Iv-y never seen anything like it!

1 GoodGymer made their way to help an isolated older person in Sheffield.

A return visit for GG to Mr D, who is having trouble keeping on top of the ivy in his rear garden. Rachel had already done a great job a few months ago so I continued the blitz and cleared as much as possible from the side of the house and fence. Apparently the ivy that is now almost completely covering the back of the house is all from one small pot he got a few years ago! After checking for birds nests I got rid of as much as the rubble bag could hold and then cleared the side path to make it more accessible. Mr D was really pleased about the extra light in the garden and that he can now fully access the washing line! But at the rate it seems to grow, I'm sure we'll be back!

Well done Nat! I've been feeling guilty every time I see the mission listings! Glad you were able to get some good work done! Has he got his new French window pane?
