A strange pair...or an odd couple?
Our walk started out along a local lane, the same lane we litter-picked recently. We stood for quite some time trying to figure out the story behind this particular litter - if indeed it is litter.
You probably haven't spotted it yet. Look just above the gate post.
As we got closer we realised we were looking at a pair of stripy black and white stockings! Not just a pair of stripy black and white stockings hanging in the hedge - oh no. They're PEGGED to a branch!
So what do you think is the story? I can just about imagine someone getting their stockings wet in the long grass and deciding to take them off and put them to dry in the hedge, maybe while having a picnic. But who on earth takes clothes pegs out in their pocket?
Answers on a postcard please!
Still time to enter my giveaway (winner will be chosen by random.org on Friday UK time)
