Dear Readers, you might think that North London would be a poor place for plants, but not a bit of it – there are a wide range of habitats, and a considerable number of ‘aliens’ who have made the pavements of East Finchley their home. Some might call them ‘weeds’, but for me they a valuable reminder of the extraordinary resilience and adaptability of life.
So, for this week’s quiz, see if you can identify the plants in the photographs below. I am going to make it a tad harder by not making it multiple choice this week, which is fiendish I know, but you’re all doing far too well. However, I will give you a little clue under each photo. So, ‘all’ you have to do is to name the plants.
You have until 5 p.m. UK time on Friday 15th April to pop your answers into the comments (as usual I will disappear them as soon as I see them) and the results will be published on Saturday 16th April.
