Sunday Quiz – Beastly Plants – The Answers

Dog Rose

Dear Readers, what a popular quiz this was! All scores are out of 19 because like a twit I lost count of my photos. In joint first place were Christine and Rayna with 18 out of 19, well done ! They were closely followed by Liz with 17, Mike with 16, Andrea with 14 and Anne with 13. A special mention also goes to Anna, who got 14 right on her first attempt at a Bugwoman quiz – welcome Anna! A most creditable bunch of scores from everybody, thank you for playing. I shall have to think up something even more exciting for next week. Do let me know if you have any thoughts on a subject that you’d like to be quizzed on next week, otherwise who knows what dastardlyness I might come up with?

    Ha ha – we call the spider plant hen-and-chickens in South Africa. I am fairly chuffed with my 13 correct guesses. It was fun to participate.

    Not sure how but I missed the email on this one (again). Though I did get the Wednesday Weed (which reminded me to look). Another great quiz. 😊 My only suggestion for next week or another week are those creatures which act or maybe look like their name (though maybe that’s too easy?)
