Last week's mystery photo seems to have been very hard as no one managed to work out that it was a close shot of roots. To be exact the roots of a Cymbidium Orchid which was in urgent need of splitting and re-potting. Something I should really have done last Spring when it didn't flower for the first time in years. It is quite an effort to cut through that tangle of old roots and I end up having to use a freezer knife which has a saw blade type edge. I ended up with three pots which should start to produce flowers again in a couple of years time.
Thank you to those who did make a guess.
I am running out of ideas and things to take macro shots of so this week here is a complete object.
I wonder whether you can work out what it is.
Including the small ring it measures 7cm (just under 3 inches) in height.
Please leave any guesses in the comments.
They will be revealed, along with the answer, next Monday.
No prizes, just my congratulations and possibly a virtual Midmarsh Gold or Silver Star.
A mainly pictorial record of the wildlife and events in my part of Lincolnshire. My garden has two bird nest boxes and a Hedgehog house fitted with video cameras. There are several bird feeders and a large pond attracting a variety of wildlife to the garden.
Most of the pictures in the main part of my Jottings can be clicked on for larger views.
Many of my video clips are stored on my YouTube account.
Thank you for visiting and remember you are always welcome to leave any comments. John.
