The Taming of the Shrub
1 runner ran to help an isolated older person in Islington.
- Wednesday, 28th of July 2021
Today GoodGymmer Steve had a short and pleasant jog to today’s task. Miss D had a really overgrown front garden that needed taming, to help let in the light through the front windows and ease pressures with the neighbours. When Steve arrived Miss D had some lovely new and sharp tools to cut things back down to a more manageable size.
After an initial charge into the undergrowth, it turned out that packing away all the foliage into the bags was going to take a fair bit longer the time required to lop things down! So after an initial frenzy there was lots of snapping, crushing and compacting to get things tidy again.
A second wave of trimming was hurried as the sunshine gave way to a torrential downpour, making the jog home more of a soggy gauntlet, but Miss D was really happy with the results!
