What Is It XXIV - Answers

Here are the answers for the What Is It.

On a side note, Sara below won my 750Th post contest and is deciding what photo she wants framed.

#1 Is the Stigma of the beautiful Lily, the Stamen area consists of the Stigma and the Anthers around it. This one was heart shaped. Darla got #1 right away even though she wasn't being technical with names. Sara said Stamen and Gaelyn said Stigma. You women really know your flowers. #2 Is a canoe witch was near the lake at the winery I visited. I thought the scratches in the fiberglass would give it away. There were a lot of plastic guesses. The close-up made it too hard to guess.
This is a photo of the Cattails behind the boat, they are referred to as Bulrushes in England, Canada and South Africa. Joan was the first one to identify this common plant. Moses was hidden in the Bulrushes in a ark made from them for the Pharaoh's daughter to find in Egypt.
I thought these were easy and #2 turned out pretty hard. You must always remember I'm the Fishing Guy.

There were really good ones my friend Tom. Even though I am not too great at guessing what they are, it is fun to try. :) Thanks.

Darla said...

Dang it! I actually thought cattail!!! I still love to play this game....

Gaelyn said...

Wow, I actually got one right. I think that's a first at anyone's guessing game. Glad you liked my other answers.

Gina said...

Mary said...

Well, I missed this one...darn. Not to get technical, but isn't that the pistil rather than one of the stamens?

This is a conspiracy! I know I would have gotten all of them, each one is something I am constantly looking at, but we will never know now will we! You managed to post both question and answer between my blog reading time yesterday morning and now this morning! (I'm not blaming you, I'm just saying, but I sincerly hope you hear my blubbering in all of this!) Clearly my Tuesday needs to be rearranged, but then you will have things I've never seen! Hence the conspiracy! Because of course it is all about me isn't it! But I enjoyed the pictures all the same. Now that I am heavily depressed there is nothing left for me but to enjoy hacking weeds and watering.

Have a great and glorious day.

Sara G said...

Take care and thanks so much!!

Have a great day.

George said...

When I saw this post on my dashboard I wss upset that I missed another of your 'What Is It?' quizzes. After seeing the answers I don't feel so bad -- I wouldn't have done well anyway.

Craver Vii said...

Shame on me! I entertained the thought of a boat, but couldn't figure out what part it might be. Good one, Fishing Guy!!

Tina said...

lol yes, you are the fishing guy..a boat..never thought of a boat..I saw the marks in the plastic and it reminded me of our frisbee we throw for the dog! That was pretty good!!

Craig Glenn said...

I agree Tom this is a lot of fun, however I must protest this special treatment you have been giving that bug lady! I got two right and she only got one! and yet my name is not amoung the winners!!!

ARGGG you are right lanny, blogging conspiracy that is what this is!

Craig

SAPhotographs (Joan) said...

My goodness but you are a sore looser Craig!! If you did not sleep so late maybe you would get the answer right too. Oh I forgot, you wait to see what I post so you can copy my answers, then you cannot expect to see your name up in lights like mine.

LOL!! LOL!!

It looks like him and Lanny should go and produce X-files movies with their conspiracies. :)

Tom said...

Craig: You know I always am fair and give the first guess credit. Joan is right, you have to get up pretty early in the morning to beat her. Of course, it is afternoon for her.
Lanny: See what happens when you cry conspiracy, that theory just grows.

Tipper said...

Neat what is it's again. Love the picture of the canoe.

Sorry I missed out on the 750th contest-we've been out of town. But Congrats to the winner!!

Lanny said...

My, my, my how you do all carry on so. Hey, not my fault if some folks (Craig) can easily see truth!

And if we are going to be getting all technical and stuff, we all better be a brushen up on our botany eh? And start talking about Synocarpous gynoecium and multiple connate fused carpals and how they are or aren't inaccurately called the female part of the flower and how confusing it all is that the tippy top of all of that is oft refered to the stigma which sounds alot like stamen, 'cept that the stamen is the filament and anther, oft refered to as the male parts. Oh don't get me started, I ain't got nothin' to thunk on while I'm out waterin' the Highway Garden. Talk about aliens and conspiracies, ever see a virus close up. Thems are aliens sure as shoot. And ain't no antiseptic handy wipes around that can deal with a determined and crafty virus, and all that is a whole nuther line of conspiracy.

Sorry Fishin' Guy the sunlight's done got to me.
