Anyone watching?

Just catching up on the first episode and heard Stanley Tucci say in the home counties, pampas grass growing in the garden is a sign that swingers live there grin

yes app apparently well known back in the key party days. My Ils used to have it in the front garden of their house, worryingly

I had heard this. Also, daddy-long-legs lay their eggs in it.

I must put some wind chimes or pampas grass outside my house. I quite fancy the sheriff popping along for a 'cuppa'...

A well-known signal in the 70s/80s.
My mum planted up our front garden, it was all green grass then a huge clump of pampas grass in the middle. I have seen photos of the parties but she still denies it.

Once a burglar broke into our house using a big bunch of the pampas grass lit with a lighter to see by. It set fire to the curtains and sofa. It was only because my brother was sleeping downstairs that it didn't end very badly.

Me too, I like enigmatic men with beards.
