The Car And It's Leaking Radiator
Karen discovered these seeds and decided to grow them to see what they looked like.
They are called Black Dragon Coleus - with a name like that you really would want to see what they would like don't you think.
Anyway here it is - it is quite unusual.
Really pretty leaves, I'm not sure if it will flower, we will have to see!!!
We are having car troubles at the moment - cars are great when they work but a real pain in the rear when they don't.
Our Audi (an old car) has sprung a leak in it's radiator.
So on Saturday Danny decided he was going to fix it. First of all he had to take the front bumper off - much easier said than done. It wasn't just a case of unscrewing it but maneuvering it and a lot of pushing and pulling to unclip it.
It took a long time to get it off but he did manage it -well done Dan :))
The next stage was to get the leaking radiator out - another problem - the bolt was locked tight and wouldn't budge so he had to break it eeeek.
I had to go to the parts department and buy new ones - and I did that today.
Tonight it is really miserable - drizzly rain and quite chilly. Poor Dan is out there in the rain putting the new radiator in. Hopefully he will be finished soon - it's now 9pm.
I've just made a nice cup of coffee for him to have. So I'm going to see if he is nearly finished.
Update - the radiator is in just the front bumper to go back on - that's tomorrow nights job!!
