Yarn Bombed Trees in Worthing


It's been an unseasonably chilly month of June so far and even the trees in Worthing are wearing woolly jumpers, it seems.
   I cycled past this technicoloured tree cosy in the rain yesterday so had to return under blue skies to take a closer look. There are in fact three knit-adorned trees on the corner of Union Place and the A259, a spot that boasts a fine view of the ring road in front of Waitrose's car park and is next to a big boarded up space by yet another car park. The town's Conservative club HQ is opposite. It's a location that really benefits from some colour and cheer!
   I suspect this outdoor art installation is the work of Worthing's guerrilla knitters, though the piece is unsigned. The decorated trees surprised and delighted passers by.
