When I saw the above, I immediately thought how strange it was for all those leaves to fall as they had; covering each step perfectly.
When I looked more closely I could see that it wasn't leaves at all, but wood chips.
So, here is the question. Why would anyone cover all those steps with wood chips?
Is it insulation against frost?
Is it a cheap form of cushioning?
Is it an art installation by some wag at the Art College?
Or maybe it's a new Wokey-Jokey protest against tree felling.
All sensible (or not so sensible) suggestions would be welcome.
