Ode to Guinness??? ... also All Fools' Day ...

Today I again looked very hard for another fitting shot.
I needed something with at least a wee bit of GREEN. Not just pale or dark ale!
It is after all SPRING... Here is - again - my toast to all my Trek friends:
... " May you be in winter when it snows where you are..."
{ After all it snowed 10-20cm in "The Hat"...
Hello Rick!!! One step forward and two back?}

But here is the good news:
small shrubs, bushes and trees are already getting "reary" to turn GREEN again!!! \
< See this "Guinness" bud ready to burst forth. >

So my friends allow me another toast: Cheemo!

And finally -again - the puzzle of the day: can anyone tell me what plant/bush/tree this Guinness sprig belong to?

See also my previous one: (I) which contains details of the "green" seen here in the lower left corner.

Photo detail: Shoot (handheld, macro); crop; scale(50% to fit TN); caption; post. Compo: I went for the "solid square" look, as I wanted that wee bit of green in the lower left...

Hello Jay,
You must have a steady grip to shoot a well detailed macro like this handheld, great job. As for ID after my last poke it the dark, if I tried you'd just die of laughter. Looks like a vinyl leather bush. The Numero uno highway was a mess this morning big rig jacknifed, numerous car in the ditch and a suv rollover, 1.25 hours what normally takes 40 minutes, but it was our turn.

Hi Jay,
this is a neat looking photo you have offered us today.Those leaves look like leather tongues panting in the fresh air.As for what they belong too I haven't a clue but I like your mystery photo just the same.With good colour and pov this macro is just so interesting.One more thing I noticed you have your photo inverted on your account home page ,if you have it that way to see if anyone is paying attention you bet we are.Keep 'em coming Jay your work is enjoyable. Tfs. Bob
