Pothole gardens

Now I'm not one for cycle advocacy, much preferring a slug of vodka and The Datsuns on the iPod when it all gets a bit too much.

But sometimes a bit of direct action makes me smile. Enter photographer Pete Dungey in Oxford who has decided the best way to solve the pothole crisis is to bung some geraniums in them.

"It's just a project to highlight the terrible state of our roads across the country," he says.

Now that's what I call rock and roll.

What a fantastic idea!!

I wonder if I can get away with planting a tree or two in the larger ones?
