Found art: the fabulous leaf balloon of Regents Park, London

On Sunday, I came across this rather curious leaf-covered balloon in Regent’s Park.

At first I thought it might have been a piece of ‘official’ art, but it seems more likely that it had been created by nature given that it was in a far corner of the park behind some trees.

The discarded balloon’s string had got caught up in the bush behind and, over time, autumnal leaves had blown up and stuck onto its surface to create this rather splendid object.
