The People's Pants!

Hurrah! Hurrah! It's pants time again.. Long term Sockwatchers may remember last year when Chris Beardshaw informed that he was looking for adventurous briefs and SOIG viewers contributed some marvellous ideas . Well if the Garden Monkey is to be believed the RHS are asking people to contribute their pants for flower displays!!! Who cares whether this is true or not it is such a totally fantastic idea!

So the Sock has taken the most popular pants from last years pantathon which are also for some odd reason the most googled image on her bloggywog. Yes! It's the return of the Vizeau 'white pants' the ones that someone said would make a good place to park her bike.


The Sock has planted them up with a tasteful Sarah Raven cut-flower arrangement.



An absolute winner.

Pah! Emmat beat me to the Pantastic pun! On reading the GM I see they are after bras too - now I seem to have a vague memory of someone making a hanging basket out of a bra once upon a time..... Just goes to show they were years ahead of the RHS!

Arabella Sock said...

Tee hee Crusty - I'm just looking through my archive discs to see if I've still got the hanging bra-sket photo. I think I may have increased a bra size or two since then! LOL

Recycling underwear has long been popular with gardeners. In an old issue of AG there was a tip about using bras to support melons (seriously)and, I quote, 'store onions and garlic in an old pair of tights hung from a rafter, to keep them fresh and dry'. It goes without saying that you'd have to wash the tights first or the onions wouldn't taste very fresh.

Martyn these came up in last years pantathon - there was a suggestion they could be used to hang cucumbers in

clic for the pic

There are cracks appearing in the arrangement...

A most tasteful choice of 'Gerberbras' there Arabella!

And borrowing a joke from GM's F'nM awards, there's only one veggie to grow in your pants - brassicas!

And Martyn - old tights is the only way to store garlic and onions.

I'm probably the last to find out but I've just read that James May is exhibiting a plasticine garden at Chelsea.

So I'd believe anything of anyone.

I'm sure The Apprentice's Pantsman has something to do with this.

They also use old tights at Kew to tie the orchids to their host trees, before they've formed a proper bond.

Those pants really crack me up! Methinks someone has been out with the hedge trimmer too! Personally I prefer some big bloomers :)

Arabella Sock said...

I think I have a picture of a pair of your big bloomers somewhere Ms. B.. they have a picture of CB on them if I remember rightly.

Fat Rascal you weren't the last to find out about the plasticine garden - that must have been me this morning. I said we should have knitted one - I could have done a great water feature!

Ms B said...

Ah yes, my lazy trollop knickers! I have just been looking at them & they are a real work of art! A cut above those clingy revealing jobs you have shown.

Yolanda Elizabet Heuzen said...

Well Arabella you didn't hold back with this post here but certainly let it rip! Which for some unknown reason suddenly brings to mind the fact that those pants would be the perfect attire for someone who had overindulged on the Jerusalem artichokes.

It says the RHS wants your bras.
