Colors are the smiles of nature. – Leigh Hunt
Much to my dismay, my gardens have all practically gone to the weeds. Good thing I love weeding (it’s instant gratification and therapeutic to get my hands dirty). Bad thing it got so hot so quickly! But I’m not giving up. No, no, no. Must make room for the beautiful colors of nature. During my first round I discovered lots of interesting things, those little treasures just waiting to be revealed.
Today’s mystery “what is it?!?” picture was inspired by looking at this subject differently than you might normally view it. Can you tell? Do you know?
What Is It?!?
Shahn came oh-so-close to guessing yesterday’s picture! But alas, it continued as a mystery here on wordpress.com; however, Paul managed to reveal the subject’s identity on Facebook. But before I reveal to you, let’s go through the guesses. Was it a closeup of a headlight or taillight of a car? Ooooh, close, kind of, but not on a car. Test tubes in a test tube holder? Not that either. Were they lights around a makeup mirror? Not around a makeup mirror …
… and that was my subtle clue to Shahn. My replies are all carefully worded. Had I said “not lights around a makeup mirror,” you could assume that I mean they’re not lights and not around a makeup mirror. But “not around a makeup mirror” meant the mirror part was incorrect … but not the lights.
So … drum roll please … what you saw were the LED lights in a flashlight. I liked how the lights picked up the surrounding colors.
