It’s that time again – mystery pic time! Here is your 25th weekly “what is it?!?” mystery picture, ready for your guessing pleasure. Do you know? Can you tell?
What Is It?!? – Week 25/52
What Was That?!? Last Week’s Picture – Week 24/52
Sarah guessed, “Celery in B&W?” Not celery. “A palm leaf or ornamental grass?” Not from a palm or ornamental grass. But you do get a ding for guessing a leaf. Of what, though? “I knew it was some sort of vegetation! Hmm, it could of course be a plant that’s well known in your region but alien to me! Looks quite similar to a corn leaf?” Not a corn leaf, and you could be correct, that this plant isn’t in your neck of the woods. It’s actually a leaf from a lily. “Is it really? Oh, we do have lilies but I thought their leaves were more smooth. Well done for foxing me!” Meanwhile, Jude was thinking along the same lines, “Palm leaf?” Not from a Palm, but it is a leaf. One more ding! Tracey asked, “Is it a Hosta Lily leaf?” … “But no, cos we do have them here … hmmmm”
Between you ladies you’ve got three ding ding dings! So what was it? What you saw was part of a lily leaf. What type of lily? If I was a good gardener, I could tell you. My mom would have known, these lilies came from her. So anyway, how different it looks in black and white, eh? Seemed to give the leaf a different depth perspective.
P.S. This is just for JC: I did do this post while you were here. 😀 I know, I’m a stinker!
