A plant-friendly "Beetle" at Gardening Scotland 2009

The car squirted water at onlookers (welcoming in the very warm weather) and played music!

This is great! I've always wanted to plant a grand piano garden, but can't convince my husband this is a good idea.

Great fun. I can remember a very long time ago when I lived in London, growing up, my friend's parents first car was a beetle, and in those days you were well off if you had a car, and the streets weren't busy. We played in the street then. You couldn't do that now.

I bet that was fun to put together. I love it.

Hi Pianolady!

So sorry that your other half is not in harmony with you on this one. You may have to play it low key, in order for him to get in tune with your grand design.

Ieriously, I'm intrigued by your idea. Do you want to plant up a real grand piano in your garden, or have plant references to one? Or, say, famous piano composers/concertos

Ebony and ivory plant colours would look gr8 together, with a few famous "names" thrown in. I took a pic of a garden at the show called "Jazz Up Your Garden", which was largely black and white, and had metal sheet music as trellis. Will post tomorrow, for you. :-)

Lindak. - Am lucky that, here, our kids can still play football, etc in the street, but this may just be due to luck or location. I do find myself checking out the lounge window every 10 mins or so, though, coz I worry when I can't see them directly.
