Ropey Lodger

By Fefe
Hello people!
Todays image was taken in my garden the other day, a close up of some old rope I collected from a beach last winter............. I like grotty stuff that gets washed up on beaches and I do save nice bits and bobs for the garden............ Yes I know that might be a bit strangeTongue but don't frett I havent got any drums of anything sinister in my gardenWinkSad
I am going to upload a version which I dont like as much as this one but it has a little lodger on it, so I thought you might like to see that ....................... the lodger wasn't visible while I was taking the photo, if I had seen it I wouldn't have got so closeTongueTongue
It is also the reason behind todays title.........

Thankyou all so much for votes and comments on my "Lily" the other dayGrinGrin

I don't believe you. I bet you have all sorts of weird drums in your garden. And banjoes. And castanets. Ho ho ho.

Excellent detail on these grotty ropey bits, Diane, but I can't see the lodger in V2 Sad He might've been outgrotted.

Hahaha........................... actually we did have a drum that was ex boys brigade in the garden, we used it as a table, but it only lasted a year and the weather killed itSad................... The lodger is in the top left quarter, near the black bit of ropeGrin

My eyesight is that poor, Diane, that I can't make out the lodger, sorry Sad. You'll have to enlighten me as to what he/she is Smile Carol

Got the lodger, and I like the shape of v2 better. Two lovely doses of texture and not in the slightest bit ropey!! Tongue

The lodger is only small Carol................ it is in Version 2 only and is in the top left quarter of the image next to the black bit of rope, I have no idea what it is and it must be minute, I couldnt see it until I uploaded to the computer.

Shouldn't these be in the 'Adult' category as there are certainly 50 shades of grey in these?
