    1. Ha! How would you know that it’s the veins in a leaf? Maybe they’re not… ๐Ÿ˜‰ It didn’t occur to me that someone might even try to identify the precise plant, if plant it is. Your attempt to do so scared me and now I’m afraid angry botanists will storm my place and demand that I procure a sample of this for them to classify.

          1. What would a botanist mob arm themselves with I wonder. Don’t die until you have uploaded that final photo to your blog so that I know the answer. ๐Ÿ˜‰

          2. Ha ha ha! Then you will definitely have just enough time for the photo as you die a slow and agonising death. I was imagining sharp implements, them brandishing cacti and wearing armour studded with thorns.

            Is this conversation too macabre? ๐Ÿ˜€

          3. This conversation would be absolutely perfect if it didn’t involve my own death. Cacti and thorns? Thanks, but I’m not into this kind of thing really ๐Ÿ˜ฎ Will keep you posted. I may even stream my death live.

    1. Osmosis-like straws?! Your guess is too clever! I’m not sure if you qualify for this guessing game because you’re obviously overqualified ๐Ÿ˜‰ But seriously, thanks for stopping by, it’s my pleasure!

  1. Have you and Lucile been visiting the same cakeshops in Amsterdam? Or are you now rolling your own (cabbage leaves)…will have to leaf through google to see if I can find inspiration….

    1. Busted. Indeed Lucile and I have been plotting a conspiracy in said cakeshops to overthrow democracy and establish the dictatorship of the cabbage. I should have posted the photo of the cabbage that I have, but I didn’t so as not to copy Lucile’s idea…

  2. Well my dear mara so lovely to see you joining in the challenge even at it seems your peril.

    I note you cleverly evade answering a yes or no so should I guess leaf too because that is all I can think off after a lovely glass of mulled wine and late night Christmas shopping! Am I right? ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Oh of course I had to join your challenge, what fiancee would I be to pass ๐Ÿ˜‰ The challenge is however turning out more challenging than what I originally suspected. A mob of botanists on their way to poison me! Whew… As to leaf or not leaf, I won’t tell :-p

      1. Oh you wicked kitty! And I see you are now married to lucile did she pip me to the post after we had been courting so long? Perhaps those botanist know what a flirtatious kitty you are you are oh what a flirtatious kitty you are! (Poetry takes over)

        1. Oh I am not really wicked… *innocent look* But I didn’t have the heart to refuse Lucile’s proposal. I also married Andy of Belgianstreets. I suppose I practise polygamy. Hope our wedding is not off? *flirtatious look*

    1. My dearest humanoid-wife-cabbage-shop-co-conspirator, thank you for visiting me. I hate you for outsmarting me with your swear word of malus sylvestris. What the converge, are you one of the botanists looking to murder me in disguise?

    1. It might be the back of a lizard… A leaf? How boring! But I won’t tell now, I think it’s against rules. Blame Justine ๐Ÿ˜‰ Will reveal the answer in due time. Thank you for your guess!

    1. Breaking news: reporting from the site where the mad botanist protest was going to take place, but no botanists in sight yet. Maybe the initial reports of the impending massacre were exaggerated. Will keep you posted.

        1. Relieved! Though I might have just summoned the wrath of a random topless man whom I shot in the street stealthily with my camera and whose photo I posted now for everyone to see. Enjoy undisturbed sleep though. Let’s pretend no creepy topless guys are roaming the streets.

  4. It’s a spider. Definitely a leaf mimicking, innocent looking, blood thirsty, soul-sucking spider that camouflages itself in order to sneak up on it’s hapless prey–Botanists!

    1. Getting warm! You might very well have the closest guess of everyone here! ๐Ÿ˜‰ It is quite clearly something threatening, poisonous and murderous. I never hated botanists and zoologists as much as now…

      1. I’m getting warm? Phew ๐Ÿ™„ I’m so glad I went with that one. It was a toss up between M. leaflikeus (the leaf mimicking jumping spider) and my second choice: a leaf-mimicking alien invader from the planet Chartreusia.

        And I’m having so much fun with the smileys ๐Ÿ˜€

          1. Haha, it might indeed be a leaf hopper! The big revelation should come on Saturday, I think, will need to check back with Justine the Big Sister who organises this challenge…

          2. I just looked at the rules and am utterly frosted to find out that you mean NEXT Saturday. If I die of frustration before then it will be entirely your fault. Just saying …

          3. I’m so sorry for your suffering but I’m being tortured as much as you by being forbidden to reveal the answer as yet! Hopefully we won’t perish until next Saturday…

          4. Oh my, a man-eating locust and a cabbage-eating moth!? I can’t stop laughing hysterically… I will need to make a post of the best suggestions — yours will constitute the first top three ๐Ÿ˜€

          1. Hmmmm … how about–
            * a praying mantis
            * an invasive species of cabbage moth (or other moth, or toxic butterfly)
            * invasive member of the grasshopper/locust family
            Just throwing stuff at the wall now:)
