A woman in Sweden has found her wedding ring on a carrot in her garden after it was lost for 16 years.
Lena Paahlsson had misplaced the ring in 1995 after placing it on her kitchen draining board to do some baking. When she went back to retrieve it she discovered it had gone and despite turning the kitchen upside-down nobody was able to locate it. 16 years on and Lena was digging up vegetables in her garden when she discovered a gold band around one of the carrots - it was her ring, it must have made its way in to the compost heap and then to the vegetable garden where a carrot had grown precisely through the middle of it.

She must be keeping it for sentimental reasons, lets face it the gold in a 1 carrot ring ain't worth keeping

I wonder how it made it in the yard,Was one of her family members jealous and tossed it out side or did it fall to the floor and stick to someones shoe and fall off outside.One thing is for sure ,Mother nature gave it back to her,Hope she keeps better track of it now,what a happy ending to a sad story.
