Glo, you managed it again, Well done. It was plant sap, which was all I was looking for. I think you will need a bigger bucket to add this week's gold star to the collection. The plant is one of my Cymbidium orchids. They all exhibit the same problem and I have never managed to find out what is causing it. Every year these little 'bubbles' of sap appear. I suspect a plant pest of some sort but have never found one. It doesn't seem to harm the flowers, just makes the plants extremely sticky to the touch.
Wilma: The plant is in the conservatory and the building seen in the sap is next door to me.
On to this week's puzzle. Even I am not sure what it is. All I know is I took it out of my arm where it had been for about a week - I just didn't know it was there. I had been bitten and the resulting pain and swelling masked it until things settled down a bit.
Two views of the same object, total length about 18mm
No prizes, Just for fun, though you get a virtual gold star if your guess coincides with mine.
