What Is It XIX - Answers

This was another good week with the guesses. A special call-out to Craig for hitting three really early. Go to his site to see some of Florida's neat nature photos. What a showing on the site, no BS on these guesses, see Joan's site to see what happened this week with her crane photo.

#1 This is a Surrey with a fringe on top. I must give Shelly props for an early guess with the wagon bottom. She has a neat birding site in Michigan and has sent down her dove Bob for several photo shoots. LOL The second and third are the turning control on a fire hydrant. I thought the colors were quite unusual. We do have pure red ones also. George said he never gets any then he comes through like a trooper. You can see some neat views from the Smoky Mountains.

#4 It is a Fiddle-head Fern. No question where the name comes from. Darla was the first one to guess a fern unfurling. What a place to see flowers from Florida. Gaelyn actually said the right name, the travelling gypsy is at the Grand Canyon with great views on her site. Rose sent me the answer by E-mail also, check out her neat B&W old barn.
This was another fun week.

I missed this week! Been too busy at work to get much blog visiting done. The only one I know I would have gotten was that last shot of the fern. Very nicely done, FG!

Oh dear!! ANOTHER week with wrong guesses for me. When do you think I am going to get even one right Tom? :) I think you are going to have to show me the full pictures first then put the cropped ones on, that way I might be in the running. LOL!! Just LOVE the music with it. It brings back memories of a wonderful time in years gone by.

Congrats Craig, you actually did it. :)

Why is it the weeks I would have easily got the answers right I miss getting over here by a day or two, mmmm. It certainly couldn't be my imagination.

Very fun! Nice ones this week!

Darla said...

that was cool. I thought George was crazy for his answer. Have never seen fire hydrants painted colors like that.....or at least I haven't paid attention. I'll be looking around here to see though!!

Very nice Tom and thanks for the callout! Now the real question is how did you manage to park that buggy up there in the first place?

Gaelyn said...

Very cool surrey, and a delightful song to go with it. I am surprised that I at least got one right. Very fun.

George said...

I'm giving serious consideration to quitting while I'm ahead! I don't think I've ever gotten two right before. You certainly come up with some great "What Is It?"'s

Tipper said...

Wow-these were hard! You are so good at this-you need to be a puzzle maker!

Looks like a missed a good week. I would never have figured these out...especially the first one.
