Attack of the Green Slime!

I went for a walk and found a dried up puddle.

Well, mostly dry.
The area was covered with algae
Some dry, some still bubbly.

The patterns and colors captivated me.
Green slime indeed!


  1. Oh, wow! That first picture is beautiful--who would have thought slime could be gorgeous, eh?

    Just finished helping Alan put tarpaper on zee roof of zee shed. I'm soaked to the waist, but 'tis done!

  2. Great variety of greens in that thar slime! Who'd have known?

  3. Hi, thank you for your nice comment on my blog, it made my day!

  4. Glad your sis got the tar paper up and on. LOL

    I like your top picture too.

  5. I love all the different textures in the slime, Clytie! Hope your niece's surgery went well. You asked about the iris leaves - yes, they started out green, but the freezing temperatures have caused so many freeze/thaw cycles that the leaves have turned this colour. They are dead, and the roots will send up new ones come spring. Since I cut mine back, I don't get this effect.

  6. Those are interesting patterns. Nice eye to notice that!
