A Lonely Lady
One afternoon I heard a strange and horrible story of my gardener. Last year he had to do a very bizarre job in a neighbouring village . An old lady had died some time before the neighbours noticed that there was something wrong. She was discovered a few weeks after she had died. She had no relatives, kept herself to herself, and had neglected her garden in such a way that the undertaker was not able to remove her body from the house. There was only a very narrow path leading to the frontdoor. The gardeners were asked to remove all the weeds, bushes and plants from the garden and clean it as well as possible. It was a hell of a job and the first time they had to do this.
They often clean gardens for people who want to buy a house of which the former owner had died, but never a job like this.
It is a sad and almost unbelievable story. How lonely this lady must have been, and how difficult to live next to a person who doesn't want to have any contact with neighbours. She was a real recluse and nobody could get near her.
