Good neighbours are worth their weight in gold. Ours are wonderful although sadly the husband, my gardening mentor, died about 18 months ago. I still expect to see him wandering down the garden as there was barely a day went by when he wasn't out there.
Even after he had major abdominal surgery he wanted to help. I was removing bamboo runners just a couple of weeks after he got home, and it wasn't easy doing it by myself. Suddenly I heard a voice "I can't pull them but I can hold them up while you get under them". He simply couldn't not help.
