Saturday Quiz – Unleaving – The Answers

Pin Oak (Quercus palustris) at the back of the Guildhall in the City of London)

Dear Readers, I thought this was a tough quiz but I was obviously wrong because Fran and Bobby Freelove, FEARN, Ringgi, Sarah and Christine all got 15 out of 15 correct! Or more likely you are all just brilliant. I shall have to think up a real stinker for Saturday. Thank you all for having a bash!

Stop the press! I missed seeing Sylvie’s answer in the comments, and she got 15 out of 15 as well, so well done Sylvie!
