Mulberry and raspberry


Maybe you all know that saying from Bible, that when you are in real need, God/cosmos/angels will send you a helper….
It was my experience from today.
After three days of raining I have had high grass in my garden. Jungle compared to my neighbours with English grass and villas. Guy, who usually cuts the grass for some money for me, was busy all the week. My father has problems with knee. Brother lives in the USA. No husband at all. So – as you understand, grass will stay where it is.
In the morning I went to the small town close to the village I live in and had a coffee in a gallery.

Coming back at the lunch time, I stopped in the garden, to cut Chicago rose.

Picking raspberries, I was thinking whom I could ask for cutting the grass in my garden. Then I heard a voice :“Hello lady, can you give me a basket of peaches? I can cut your grass.” There was a young gypsy worker working on the building of my neighbour.
“Sure”. Agreement. Grass was cut in about hour. I noticed, the guy wanted to spare wild grapes and I had to force him to cut it too. But he was nice. I have perfect garden this evening :)))

While he was cutting the grass, I picked raspberries…

…and ate ate sweet mulberry (good for blood)…

Thanks to this good man I have a rest tommorrow and my garden, too.

They also taste good :)) Surreylad.
But mulberries are much better this year, as we have dry and sunny weather for 2 months.
