The symbiotic relationship between tree bark and moss. (Or is it lichen? Never was a scientist, only the wordsmith and artist. 😉 )

What Is It?!? – Week 14/52

If you didn’t think this year is going by quickly, knowing that we’re already into week 14, oh my, that proverbial clock’s tick keeps on pulsing faster and faster! And, time got the better of me. Yep, it happened. I missed my usual Monday’s “what is it?!?” post. Oh my! By the time I finished helping my 11-year old with homework, there was no more “time” remaining. Enough of excuses!

Your 14th weekly “what is it?!?” mystery picture is now ready for your guessing pleasure. (Finally!) Do you know? Can you tell?

What Is It?!?


What Was That?!? (Last Week’s Picture) – Week 13/52

Jenna started off by saying, “It’s something beautiful.” Now that’s a perspective that makes me smile! Jude’s perspective, “My first thought was cinnamon toast, but I suspect that is just wishful thinking. Could it be a rock as in sandstone?” Not a rock or sandstone, but that’s what it looks like to me. Sébastien said, “Beautiful…I’m torn between a wafer of some kind or a paper page.” Interesting perspectives, too. Neither a wafer or paper page. Sarah asked, “A ham sandwich? Or a biscuit?” Not a ham sandwich or biscuit. Mmmmmm. Hungry. “Ha ha ha! I keep thinking of gingerbread too when I look at it though I think that’s to do with its colour.” Nor gingerbread.

So what was it?!? What you saw was the space between the bark and trunk of a pine tree. Interesting, eh?

Day 180 – Not Such a Mystery

Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference. – Winston Churchill

While it’s raining (again), I’m limited to what my subjects are, so I’ve used an older photograph for today’s mystery “what is it?!?” picture. It’s one of those photos that without any color manipulation, you’d certainly know what this is. I’m betting it doesn’t take more than one guess today …

What Was That?!? Yesterday’s Picture (Day 179)

Yesterday’s picture didn’t fool Gail at all, she quickly figured out that what you saw was tree bark. That’s what tree bark looks like with a negative image. Melisa read Gail’s correct guess but still offered her perspective: a chocolate brownie cake. Mmmmmm, yummy!
