Various readers of my blog have suggested that some small creature may have taken up residence inside my bundle (oh I do hope so!) but nothing had prepared me to something taking up residence OUTSIDE my bundle. On Tuesday morning the farmer came in and suggested i take a look in the rowan tree - and this is what I saw.
Alas, I blamed my son (it is his kind of humour) but he was quick to point out that he was not the culprit. That left only one other possibility - a friend with a similar sense of humour. Finally, yesterday, she owned up to the prank!
So the photograph above is being added to "The Life of Bundle" - any day now he/she/it is coming down to be transformed into an art work for Seth. I have half a mind to run over it several times in the car to flatten it (and hopefully spread some of the colour through) - for my goodness me that Times is awfully good protection. This morning we had a torrential downpour and already the hot sun has dried the bundle out. It has certainly taken on a life of its own. I shall miss it when it comes down - but shall not miss the mask!!
The farmer put the mask in the dustbin - friend retrieved it, saying she might be able to scare a few trick or treaters by wearing it herself on Hallowe'en.
