Another Mystery Picture to Guess

Here's the new mystery picture. We'll see if I can be a tad trickier this time than last time. I was trying to be tricky last time, but obviously I missed the mark on that. I had no idea that all of you were country girls like me who knew your wood.
 
 
Here is the picture nearly all of you figured out. And then the rest of the picture. I was imagining you seeing canyons and who knows what else. But most of you saw exactly what it was. A slice of tree trunk. Still, it's pretty neat, don't you think? I spotted it on my walk last week. A little bit of a tree sawed down and deserted. No fire made with it. 

When I was a kid, one of my chores was to carry in loads of wood and stack it on the back porch for the woodstove. Helped develop my muscles. Even after I married, we burned wood for heat until a few years ago when my husband developed allergies. Nothing like the warmth of wood heat. Sitting by a fire, reading a book, drinking a cup of tea. Simple pleasures.

I've got all of you who made a guess on the last picture entered in the giveaway for one of my books and another grab bag book. Remember, I'm picking three winners on February 1, 2015. You have to be 18 to enter and a USA or Canadian resident to win the paper books. But if you live in other countries and want to play the guessing game, I'll send you an e-book if you win. If you guessed on the last picture and then guess again on this new picture, you get another entry. Each guess on a new picture earns an entry for you.

So what do you think it is? I do hope I have a few of you at least momentarily puzzled with this one. LOL. We'll see. You all are hard to fool. Remember, it's more fun to guess first and then check out the other guesses. The most important thing to remember is that it's all for fun. Wrong guesses get an entry the same as right guesses. But you do need to leave a way to contact you. If you don't want to leave your e-mail here, you can send your guess via my e-mail, annhgabhart(at)yahoo(dot)com or leave a message on my Facebook page.

Okay. Time to guess!!

  6. Okay, you stumped me. I'm going with a creative "caterpillar in the snow" guess. Yep, sounds right to me, ha ha! thimbleluvr@hotmail.com

    1. Well, you may not be right, Amy, but your guess is very creative. Poor chilly caterpillar. LOL

  7. It is obviously yellow snow ---a passing polar bear or a dog left a mark. Or it is pineapple floating in a bowl of blue punch for a baby shower for a baby boy yet to arrive. Or....shoot fire....I have no idea so I guess I will focus on the yellow snow.

    1. There have been some interesting guesses, Brenda. The yellow snow must come from somebody snowed in too long. LOL.

  14. Lemon bars on a blue plate sprinkled with sugar! Though my first though was pineapple, but on second thought (and look) I thought maybe not. Fun challenge!

    1. And it was a favorite guess, Danie. Not too mysterious for most of you. However, the next mystery picture from Sunday has fooled everybody so far. The big reveal later tonight.
