A Bonny Bunch of Flotsam

Normally, the flow of the river brings bits of rubbish, old bags and plastic bottles which get lodged between our boat and the bank. Today it was a bunch of beautiful orange roses.

It made me wonder what the story was behind this. Did a jilted lover throw them in, following a fit of rage? That would make them deliberately thrown waterbourne debris - jetsam.Or more likely they just fell from someone's bag making them merely flotsam.

  1. ...maybe there was a boat-top's fun to think of how they might have come there...
