Photo-a-day 29/365 Pigling Bland ready for adventures


I spotted this little pig in the Red Cross shop window and thought it might be Pigling Bland from the Beatrix Potter story of that name. When I looked at him more closely in the shop, I discovered he is indeed the famous pig who ran away with Pig Wig the little black Berkshire pig.

As he was very reasonably priced, I couldn't resist bringing him home because I thought that when the weather got better, he might like to go out in search of adventures.
