Headed off on my walk looking for something abandoned in the track around our housing estate and through the woods down to the cafe with ongoing farmers market. Made the mistake of turning right instead of left! Did I see much? Nothing! The local Friends Of Group seem to have been working their miracles clearing the way of litter and debris. Having virtually given up I came up the other way and past the children`s park back onto our estate and there this little fellow was - carefully hung on a tree by the path so that some poor kid or worried parent faced with sleepless nights might some back and get him. If I`d walked the other way it would have been a 3/4 mile walk instead of the 3!!!! I toyed with the idea of taking the piggy back down to near the Farmer`s Market to call it "The Piggy who never made it to market" but thought what if they come back for it in the meantime so snapped it with my brand new Fuji xt30 and 90 mm f2 lens where it hung.

Went for a walk around the village yesterday afternoon, grabbed this discarded cardigan. Thirsty work so had to have a quick pint in the local to refresh.
May the Force be with you.

I'd been searching all week, but have had to go with one from last year - this chair was expelled from a local school, just sitting outside the school grounds rotting away:
