Out & About …

… on the North York Moors, or wherever I happen to be.

Witches’ Knickers

A dreich day, witness my photo of Roseberry not quite smothered by mist.

‘Witches’ Knickers’ is an Irish epithet for the poly bags that attach themselves to shrubs and trees, and barbed wire as here on Newton Moor, slowing shredding in the wind.

I keep meaning to clean it up but put that fiddly job off when it’s windy for fear of cold hands and keeping all the pieces together.

And when it’s a calm and sunny day, the knickers are not so noticeable.
