    It proved to be a very interesting challenge: I was left with three ‘unknowns’ at the end, so am glad they fell into the right places 🙂

    Yes, very interesting…cashew and Brazil nut were a guess, for redcurrant I deduced the answer from the shape of the future fruit…and parsnip roots look like Carrots …Do you know that two at least of these flowers are edible, banana ( baba figue) and pumpkin (they look very much like courgette flowers)…
