Belated anniversary

I realised yesterday that 7th February was the anniversary of my first blog entry. The past two years have flown by and yet at the same time it seems light years since we had a life without the dreaded M.

So Happy Anniversary Blog. Thank you for all the support you have given over the last couple of years, without you I would have gone completely crazy, well crazier than I already am.

While I'm here I might as well give you all the answers to What's That ?!?


This is the hairs on the style of a snap dragon, which until the weekend's snow, was bravely still flowering. If you look carefully you can actually see a grain of pollen on one of the hairs.

This is the gills on a chestnut mushroom that I had lurking in my fridge.

Well I'm tired now. Life is not easy at the moment, but it isn't something I want to share. I'll be back when the Spring comes with photos of my garden. Take care everyone.

What's That ?!? 2012 week 3

As no-one has yet made a guess as to last week's teaser I'm going to give it another week before giving out the answer.

This week there are three photos of the same thing, just different angles as it were.

There seems to be a weird dot at the bottom of each photo which I'm guessing is something to do with the camera that came with the microscope. Very strange!

Thank you Buddy

Dear Bud,

Thank you, thank you, thank you. I got the parcel this morning. I gave it a quick sniff to make sure it wasn't dangerous and then this is what I did:

Can you tell how excited I was?
