The gardener cut off all the ivy.

They had the most beautiful ivy along the passage whose wall is one of my garden´s walls. And as I don´t have a gardener, the ivy just fell wildly over my wall. At first I thought they´d cut it nicely, so that it wolud have a clean cut in my house too so that the men of the electric wire could work. But after a while the discovered that keeping it trimmed would be very difficult with the wires so they took it off. I had told the gardener that he could place all the ivy outside my garage, leaving a place for passer bys. And asked him to take a lot of garden garbage I had and tell my neighbors that I´d pay for my part of course. This evening my neighbor came to return the keys. I told her to tell me about my part when the municipe had measured the ivy and the rest. She said they´d pay for it. But if I wanted to pay in any way, please to make them again some delicious sweets I gave them for Christmas. I make them with ground cookies, ground nuts, condensed milk and covered with chocolate. They can also be covered with coconut but as I dont like dry coconut I never use that. My garden is a lot bigger now. And I will try to get a gardener to start again the front garden as Luna does not get there.

What a nice gesture that you don't need to pay but she'd like some of your sweets. I'm sure you're more than happy with that arrangement.

Sounds like a good arrangement. They must have really enjoyed the delicious sweets youmade them before.

I love ivy covered walls. They are so special and majestic somehow. I'm sorry that it had to be removed. It sounds as if you will have enough of an expense making a new garden in the front, if someone wants to help you, please let them. They are offering because they want to.
