A Piece of String

By woolybill1
More precisely, the string on a dressed onion tied round the top, maybe to prevent the shoots splitting; sometimes demanded in agricultural shows. Prudhoe Town Show, September 2017.

Hearty thanks to John (lifesnapper), David (chataignier) and Ken (Rambler) for their much-appreciated User Awards yesterday.
