    Anyone want to play a game?
    Here are the rules.
    Post a picture of a leaf, leaves and branch. Whole tree, yada.
    The picture MUST include a leaf AND an Esee knife. No leaf, no knife, no go.
    Mind power only. Google foo black belts need not apply. The op of the current picture points out who was correct first, then that person posts the next.
    If it seems to hard after a reasonable amount of time someone who is mildly interested just request additional clues or pictures from the person who posted the picture.


    I will start

    Sorry guys.. If I'm the winner then this thread is on hold for a few days till I get back to the US. There are plenty of unique leaves here but no ESEE knives to go with them. I won't make it easy for you when I get back though...:D

    I'm back home... hell most of the leaves in my area are on the ground buried under a healthy snow pack. This may end up being an easy one after all. Hope to post something later today.:)

    I would say those of us in the north are at a disadvantage as far as leaf availability for a bit longer. The evergreen game, lol.

    This is it... should be an easy one. I was going to grab something more out of the ordinary planted around the house but wanted to keep it something native to my area. So this is all you get. At least we can keep this thread moving along. I hope to have an opportunity to jump back in during the summer months with something more challenging.
