So are you upper or lower class??

I shouldn't admit to looking at the Daily Mail I know, but I had to laugh at this ridiculous story on what makes you lower vs upper class.  I thought you might enjoy finding out what class you are  :D

    I think I must be class-less. Is that the opposite of classy? Oh dear!

    I quite enjoyed the article, rather amusing and reminded me of the Jilly Cooper book, can’t remember its name. All pretty irrelevant now, but back when I was young, certainly struck some chords.

    Me too @wild edges
    There has always been some snobbery in gardening. I'm as guilty as anyone.

    That is, without doubt, a good sign.

    Are blue roses a thing ? I know there's "Blue Moon" although it's not blue by my definition. 
    I think l must be unique with no class whatsoever 😁

    @Ergates, l think the Jilly Cooper book was actually called "Class".

    What nonsense I am definitely working class and proud of it but my garden choices with the exception of blue roses are upper class. An April Fools day joke perhaps?

    I'm as unique as the next person, so there are no labels big enough for us.
