Dear Readers, some great results this week – Fran and Bobby Freelove and Claire are in joint first place with 15/15, with Anne having 13/15 (and I suspect that this was due to mixing up a C and an L rather than any actual misidentification :-)). Well done all of you, and let’s see what I have in store for tomorrow….

UPDATE: Due to a combination of technical issues and author ineptitude, FEARN, Sharon and Rachael’s answers weren’t marked – FEARN and Rachael both got 15/15, and Sharon got 11/15, though I’m not sure if her answers got truncated somewhere along the line! Well done everybody, this wasn’t easy…..

2). F) Field Poppy (Papaver rhoeas)

3) K) Creeping Buttercup (Ranunculus repens)

4) J) Lucerne/Alfalfa (Medicago sativa) )

5)C) Meadowsweet (Filipendula ulmaria)

6)L) Stinging Nettle (Urtica dioica)

      Hi Mal, this is so weird! I checked all the comments on Friday and didn’t see you, Sharon or Rachael, but I shall mark you all in the morning, I’m sure congratulations are in order all round. I think WordPress is doing stuff deliberately to annoy me….
