Nearly three-quarters, around 71 per cent, of those who responded said they'd be creating a tropical oasis in their backyard this summer in lieu of flying off to friendlier climes.
Just under a quarter, around 23 per cent, said they wouldn't be spending their vacation in their yard, while around six per cent said they might. No one voted "I don't know."

Read the story and let me know in the front page poll.
And, for some more fun weekend reading, check out this super sunny kitchen from Colin and Justin, get inspiration for last-minute gifts for Dad and read all about the home of Egyptologist Amice Calverley, which is being sold to fund an arts centre.
