    This may have been harder if I wasn’t looking out of my window at 3 inches of snow.

    Someone used the items to decorate a snowman, which subsequently melted depositing them all on the ground.

    They are from a melted snowman.
    The carrot is the nose, the scarf, and the coal for the eyes mouth and buttons.

    Happened to me this year, but less coals!

    Alternative lateral thinking solution:

    “Nobody put them on the ground”
    It was a guy called Nobody. He works for RK. He put them there so that RK could post this puzzle!

    I outsmart myself sometimes :D

    Thanks to RK for the nice puzzles

    Awwwww…I didn’t get it.

    Now I get it, but it is kind of hard to figure it out when I live in Australia and have never seen snow before so I never thought along those lines.

    In what situation would I find these?

    The carrot: was grown, or possibly an animal left this?

    7 black rocks: tilling from making a garden? shattered statue?

    Scarf: picnic for a basket, or table?

    Conclusion: (too easy to be true) someone dropped them? Someone used the scarf to throw the rocks at an animal stealing a carrot?

    what kind of yard? outside of your house, train yard, shipyard, does it matter?

    do the images have meaning? would I come to the same conclusion with only words?

    If someone gets this correct please type your thought process!

    ps the tags for the rocks and the scarf are on the wrong images.
