Macro on Monday - Guess What

For quite a while I thought I was going to get the gold star again this week but with a flash of inspiration Wilma came up trumps when she said it could be pipe tobacco. A well deserved gold star Wilma. My thanks as always to those who were brave enough to put their thoughts in print.

Now on to this week's puzzle picture:


Clue: It will never make Centre Court.
No prizes for a correct identification - just a bit of fun.

Definitely a 'Winter Wonderland' here today. Previous snow had melted and just when we thought it would stay clear the next batch arrived. By the middle of the afternoon there was a fresh layer about 4cm deep. You should have seen the sudden rush of small birds to the feeders during the heaviest of the snow fall. The wise Great Tit continues to snuggle up in the nestbox every night.


  1. I'm not doing very well but will guess at Bobby's old tennis ball.

  2. Looks like flower stamens to me; but why they'd be at Wimbledon I've no idea lol

  3. John, I know this is cheating but I know what it is Moss. Please delete my first answer. Please!

  4. Yea! I got a gold star at last!

    I'm with Keith -- it is a close up of part of a flower. But surely your clue must tell us what flower it is. As an American, am I handicapped by your clue or should any English-speaking person get it?

  5. Hi John, I am probably way off the beam but am going for the inside of an Orchid flower, I saw this on Monday and have spent two days trying to think of the name, I have one in my dining room which I have had for a couple of years but I just can't think of the exact name! The clue makes me think I am totally wrong though :)

  6. Hello Wilma. I suppose the clue is more relevant to a UK resident - Keith's thinking was heading in the right direction - Wimbledon.

  7. I think I've made it here just in time ~ could it be the stamens on your orchid in the kitchen window?

  8. Thanks once again to all who tried to identify the strawberry flower.


Thank you for visiting. Hope you enjoyed the pictures. Any comment, or correction to any information or identification I get wrong, is most welcome. John
