Okay, gimme a minute, I was looking through some pics last night to see what I could figger out.... just in case... heh heh - thought I'd get it with the sycamore....

Its it some kind of roots?

(Sheryl) Gainesboro, TN(Zone 6b)

Nope!

Tail feathers of your Prize ROOSTER?

(Sheryl) Gainesboro, TN(Zone 6b)

LOL - that's all I need!

Nope!

The white stem in the background could be
from a mushroom.
Or if its your neck.
Then you have dyed your hair purple?

Lakeland / Memphis, TN(Zone 7a)

Are we allowed to guess on hints ?

Is it in the vegetable family ?

(Sheryl) Gainesboro, TN(Zone 6b)

You're funny, nope!

I did limit myself to plant material, only - I was ready to do some strange shots of my horse's nose and decided to be kind...

Oops, missed you Bonnie - no, it's not a vegetable, although vegetables have some of these. Just not this one.

Ok .
First of all you have turned the Pic upside down.
You were not using a flash.
That is natural light coming from behind your right shoulder ,
Meaning you probably took the Pic mid morning, Out in the garden.
That opening leaf in the background would indicate some type of lilly.
How am I doing SO FAR???

One more observation .
One of the purple stems on the top right
Appears to be dividing near the top.
This is most likely a flower bud forming?
Am I warm?

(Sheryl) Gainesboro, TN(Zone 6b)

Good going, 007, until you got to the lily and your second post fell down, went boom in snow. Cold, cold, cold.

Hope you don`t mind.
I have enlarged it,
And sharpened it up so others can see what I`m saying.
This is all in the process of working it out.

Its probably something we don`t have here.
The beauty of this game is you can`t google PICS.
That`s what makes it interesting.
All I can do is keep searching my books.
I need help here. Comon you Guys.

(Sheryl) Gainesboro, TN(Zone 6b)

Actually, this particular one is native here - it was growing here in a field when I moved here in Sept. There's tons of different kinds, I'd hazard a guess that if you don't have them, someone has probably imported one.

There. You got more info out of me!

WOOO HOOO!!!!

Libby got it - although I call it a Passion flower, or Passiflora. Okey dokey, Libby - hope you found a good one for us!

Here's the full pic -

Heeeey. You guys are getting the swing of things.
If DG sees how much fun this is,
He may even put one on the front page.
Crikey, I`m holding my breath for the next one.

Central, LA(Zone 8b)

Good one PC I would have never figured that one out and Libby how in the world?

(Sheryl) Gainesboro, TN(Zone 6b)

Libby does a lot of great photos, so be prepared!

Glad you enjoyed. I'd like to show you one more pic of my Passifloras that I really like. Consider it intermission entertainment while Libby digs up a pic....

Wonder if that`s where the American Indians
Got their colour scheme from?
For their head gear.

Could be - this is one of two indigenous Passifloras to Arizona - here's the full shot:

Bob!

(Sheryl) Gainesboro, TN(Zone 6b)

Okay, just kidding. Ummm.... looks kinda like a Ficus of some sort? I've never seen one with those root like things in the middle of the tree. Is that normal for that species?

Finger Tap.# # # #
Serious now.

Yes Bob. It Is.
Guess what your new nick name is???

(Sheryl) Gainesboro, TN(Zone 6b)

LOL - lord only knows... I got a feelin' my mom beat you to it, though....

They do this for a living.
That`s not a bad clue either.

Quoting:

She call you BOB also?

(Sheryl) Gainesboro, TN(Zone 6b)

Not to my face.

Did you see my other answer above?

Yes and I answered you.
