“You must grow like a tree, not like a mushroom.” (Janet Erskine Stuart)
And so the mystery photo game is nearing an end. You guys have been great fun this time and good sports about the challenging photos I’ve found to snip a bit out of to see if you can guess. This is the last one this game. I’m sure we’ll do it again. Maybe in September when my new book, These Healing Hills releases. You can check out my News & Events Page to see how you can pre-order it if you’re interested. I’m super excited about readers heading to the mountains with me in this book.
But back to the mystery photos. You all had some very interesting guesses. Nothing wrong with your imaginations! First, I do believe we have some chocolate lovers out there like Doris who guessed chocolate frosting or soft ice cream. Jeanne was seeing a swirled chocolate ice cream cone too. April and Brenda thought chocolate icing too. But no chocolate for Evelyn. She saw sliced ham. I loved Connie’s teabag guess. Could have been, but it wasn’t. Melissa and Pat said vacuum filters. Robin thought coffee filters and Paula went from a filter to a seed pod. Marji agreed about the seed pod. Meagan and Emily thought pleated shower curtains and Sis said a mop. Oh yeah, and Sis saw an angel flying around in that shadowy blue line. I didn’t see the angel though I did try, Sis. I promise. Lisa said an old paper fan and Melissa said paper mini blinds. Both great guesses. Wrong, but great guesses nevertheless. Cheri said a flower. Linda covered a lot of bases and said a plant but she did notice that blue stripe Sis turned into an angel. Maybe that’s what had Kathleen saying ribbon. Only two of you, Margaret and Ola, guessed what I thought you might and that was the curled pages of an old book.
Amy got close with fungus on a tree and Nyla Kay and Virginia got it right when they said mushroom. If you mushroom watch, you know you can see mushrooms go through some interesting stages. This one was in one of those stages. With all the rain we’ve had this spring, mushrooms were sprouting all around. Some are here today and gone tomorrow. Others stick (literally) around a little longer. So yes, here’s the rest of the picture. A mushroom beginning to curl away.
So now one more mystery picture before I draw the three winners after the contest deadline of midnight EST on Monday, July 3, 2017. So make your guess before then to get another entry in the drawing. No big prizes. Just winner’s choice of one of my books and a grab bag book to boot.
Thanks for reading, and I hope you’ve had fun playing my mystery photo game. Compliments to you all on your wonderful imaginations. Now what can you imagine the new picture being?
