    Is it a plant that has gone to seed?

  • good, related to plant, but not to seed!

    it is the remains of a creeper that has been removed from the painted surface?

  • EXCELLENT! that is Ivy roots left on a red wooden door exposed to the sun. What I found most strange was how much these white marks looked more mineral than vegetal, like you find on rocks on the shore (nice question about the boat dogtoy)… But once it is vegetal, it doesn’t work any more…

    Cool, thought it looked like ivy, strange that it is so white though. Almost like those “worm tubes” you see on rocks at the beach. Beautiful photo by the way!

  • yes i thought exactly like you when i saw them in the first place. And the full sun accentuates this mineral grain…
    Thank you for your coment and congratulations!
