Punk Pegs




I posted this photo on Facebook last night and lots of friends were quite taken by my spiky-haired Lakeland pegs so I thought they ought to show their faces on my blog for posterity.

The hoar frost we had earlier last week was mainly shrouded in an eerie cold fog but luckily we had one beautiful sunny morning which was enough to shove me out of the door and into the garden to take a few shots.

Does show me up rather, as I realise you can see I have left the pegs on the line for a good few months: it's been tumble drier weather since about October.

Here's a selection of other photographs taken that morning before the lure of coffee, chocolate and a seat near the radiator brought me back indoors.

    1. I know, the shame. I can assure you that during the normal months of outside drying, I do put my pegs in a bag in between washings! Honest ;-)

  2. Fabulous pics! I do love a good hoar frost, we had one a couple of years ago and my camera finger has been twitching ever since! I like that your pegs are still on your line :-)

    1. I took some photos of the hoar frost a couple of years ago too but I remember there was no sun so they didn't look as good as these.
      I should pretend I put the pegs on the line in anticipation of a good photo opportunity.....

    1. I was lucky with a good sunny day, Auntie Gwen. I still haven't mastered anything more than automatic mode with my camera. I took the peg photo by standing on tip-toe and getting very close to them!

  4. It is pretty, but I'm with you, I would rather look at it from inside a nice warm house! Today the temperature is 8 degrees and snowing where I am! UGH!

    1. All I need to do now is stick little faces onto them...

    1. It makes such a difference if the sun is shining - well, for my photos anyway.

    1. Pleased I managed to contort myself so that I got the blue sky as a background.

  8. You mean that you didn't sit out on your garden swing in the sunshine to have your coffee and chocolate? It's quite safe if you use a high sun protection factor cream ( like the channel swimmers - a vision of Victoria Wood has just come to mind, you know the one? )

    1. Yes, I remember that very well. Did she ever reach the French coast, I wonder?;-)

  9. We never seem to get anything spiky and gorgeous like that hoarfrost - just standard snow and ice. I just love the clothes peg photo - it looks like it should be on the cover of a magazine! Enjoying a few days of ice-free pavements - we got above freezing long enough to melt everything. Of course, we'll be dropping down again this weekend...sigh.

    1. I bought the pegs from a shop called Lakeland so decided to pop the peg photo on their Facebook wall. They liked it.
      We have had a lot of snow following the frost last week but should be clearing by the weekend.
