    One of my favourite programmes is *The Victorian Kitchen Garden* on DVD (99p courtesy of local Oxfam shop). Very informative and makes ironing bearable.

    We in Wellington have a splendid Victorian park, immaculately kept by the council and the “Friends” of the park. It has a bandstand and a May tree that grows sideways so it looks like a little cloud when it’s in blossom, but best of all is the ha-ha. My favourite thing about the ha-ha is that there are no health and safety signs or any barriers preventing people from plummeting down the (obviously invisible) 8ft drop the other side of it – just an information sign at the park gates explaining what a ha-ha is and the assumption that most people are able to act intelligently.
