...but I forgot part of my comment! Lichen is a composite material with a fungus and something else... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lichen

Joyce said...

Upon reading the Wikipedia I would say that Lichen is right.

So, you're sure they aren't crayon sharpenings? I thought that was a brilliant guess. Crap.

Oh Alix i loved all of your answers!

My dad sent me THIS LICHEN LINK..if you scroll to the second pic you can see it is Lichen hands down.

That was a close one!

Claire let me know what pic you would like!

Joyce- you still love me right?

Mom L said...

Love your new header photo!

Joyce said...

Yes, I still love you and can't wait for the next contest! This is so much fun! I love your new header too! It's beautiful.

Joyce said...

Congrats Claire! Great job!

Seriously, I win? I never win anything. That's not entirely true. I won a car when I was 12, which was deeply unfair since I could not drive it and since my parents had already told me that in their opinion 16 was too young for driving and that I would have to wait until age 18 to get my license. I won it attending a curling match with my father, on my BIRTHDAY! We went to a curling match because my mother had the flu and we could not have my party and there was nothing else going on, so he took me to watch curling (only in Canada) and I ended up winning a car in the half time or whatever, because they pulled my seat ticket stub. Great win, if I had been older. Anyway, I think really Joyce should win, because I have too much obtuse scientific knowledge and she was at least half right with her mushroom guess, and besides you already came here and did the farm photos, so it should be someone else's turn.

claire you won a car! omg.

i'm sure joyce will be thrilled to take over the photo crown for you. :)

Joyce said...

Yes I m! Thank you so much Claire. I am having a blast scanning all the Di's posted pics. I didn't know you went sky diving, that deserves a WTF? Did Big D jump too?

I am learning so much about you!
