Monday Mystery Photo – Last week Magnolia

Picture 025

Who is this and where is it located?

Each Monday, I post a mystery photo, or occasionally a mystery object. I invite you to leave a comment*,  if you think you know the location of this week’s photograph, (posted above). If you guess correctly, I will link back to your blog when the answer is revealed the following week.  Many thanks to Ineke from for contributing this week’s photo.

*N.B. If your comment/guess isn’t showing immediately, it is because comments are released on the following Thursday or Friday of the week the Monday Mystery photo, is posted. That way, everyone gets a chance to guess, without peeking at any of the previous guesses.

Last Week’s Photo:

mmp close up May1 2017

The mystery object looks like a beguiling sea creature to some, or something edible to others, but, in fact, it was the stamens from a beautiful flower in my garden, called Magnolia Grandiflora. Here it is in its wonderous glory.


The following bloggers guessed correctly:

Gerard from Oosterman Treats Blog

Pooja from Stories from Europe

Well done, Bloggers and thanks to everyone who commented!!

Monday Mystery Photo – Always Something to Ponder About


About Forestwoodfolk

Scandinavian culture, literature and traditions are close to my heart, even though I am Australian. I have Scandinavian, Frisian and Prussian/Silesian ancestry and for that reason, I feel a connection with that part of the world. I am an avid Nordic Crime fiction reader, and enjoy photography, writing and a variety of cooking and crafts, and traditional decorative art forms. Politically aware and egalitarian by nature, I have a strong environmental bent.

  4. Is it in England? It is not Queen Victoria. Perhaps W. Churchill before he became robust.?
