The gloves were still there when I passed by earlier, but had been joined by a wee stripey companion. . .

Happily, I was able to stop Bruce before he made off with the gathering.

Perhaps folk are abandoning their winter accessories willy-nilly – it certainly feels like Spring today.

  1. Just glorious. This is my first visit here and I love your images, your admiration for life and the yarning of tales and threads. Love to have your permission to use two images for my blog and link back to you for my Month of March! Marching onwards to design, create and inspire an artful life.

  2. Now it will be worth watching this little gallery. Perhaps the artist hasn’t quite completed the installation and there’s more to come.


  3. In Indiana (USA) away out in the country at a dirt road crossing, there is a Shoe Tree. For many years shoes have been tied together and cast high into the tree. The ritual or sentiment is individual to each pair. Perhaps the Mitten/Glove Bush will become a ritual in your town.


  4. Keep a tight grip next time you are on a walk. There seems to be some sort of force field sucking the small knitted accessories off people when they pass by that fence.


  5. HA!!! Scattering nilly-willy. What a great thought. We’re getting snow today but… maybe if I scattered a few pairs of (old and nasty, store-bought) gloves on our fences… Well, who knows! I saw a couple robins this week, spring is sure to follow, right? ;-)


  6. Aw, what a sweet mystery.

    Kate, what are the buildings in the background of the Bruce picture? It’s hard to see the perspective so my guesses are “a neighborhood” or “rabbit hutches.”
