Macro on Monday - Guess What + What a Difference

Hard to make my mind up what to award for last week's guesses. No one said exclusively that it was a digital watch though all hedged their bets (lol) - hence the clue 'handy to know when' so I guess it is silver stars all round for Keith, Wilma and Jan.

(slightly different displays as these were taken at different times)

I hope this week's puzzle photo, taken today, will be easier
Guess what:
P1030654 copy

I know, I know - there are lots of yellow coloured flowers so....
Clue:A very prickly customer. (clue was revised as I had completely mis-identified the plant!)

No prizes, just for fun.

What a Difference a Day Makes

Yesterday was the 13th consecutive wet day with 13 continuous hours of rain though only half an inch was recorded by my weather station.  Enough for my back garden to start disappearing under water...

Fortunately that had already started to recede by this morning.
What a difference today brought.
Wall to wall warm Sunshine and beautiful blue sky all day.

Panorama taken with the iPhone.


  1. Hmmm, for some reason I'm thinking Mahonia, but the brain says Holly lol

    Good to see some sunshine today John.

  2. You had me scratching my head over that all evening John :-) I thought it was me who had it wrong. 'I'm sure there is no yellow flowered Holly, it looks like Mahonia!' I said. So Mahonia is my guess and if it is the same one as mine it is Mahonia Charity. And my goodness, those prickly leaves are lethal!

    It looks like you will need a rowing boat to get to the feeders soon!!

  3. I think this must be a Mahonia with its holly type leaves and large clusters of yellow flowers.

  4. OK my revised guess is a Prickly Pear Cactus...otherwise I'm at a loss!

    Forget to mention last time what a lovely panorama you have made of your sunshiny (at last) day. We had a bright sunny day today and what a difference it makes!!


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
