GARDEN PHOTO QUIZ .. Second of three garden theme puzzle blogs

44 comments


This is a similar style to my 1st February Quiz blog.

But this quiz is a bit easier than the previous puzzle.

You’re still welcome to send in answers for that one.

No closing date !

This new puzzle has 8 GoY photos, helping you to work out 8 answers … all 5-lettered words …

… and then you arrange the first letters of your eight words to spell the name of a TV gardening presenter.

Permission received for photos used. Thank you. :o)

1. Spring bulb ….. Carnaval de Nice.

2. Type of flower ….. Lily, at Felbrigge Hall.

3. General term for these growths on the log.

4. Type of shrub like Sambucus nigra ‘Black Lace’.

photo : Scottish


5. Creature such as the one in the picture below.

6. This is Val di Vergatello. In which country ?

photo : Gattina

7. Just one of these. Spring ….. ‘Red Beard’

photo : David


8. Recent GoY photo : Garrya elliptica ‘….. Roof’

photo : Terratoonie


Please send your answers to me in a private message, not on the comments. Thanks.

Eight 5-lettered word answers plus one anagram ~ the two names of the TV gardening presenter. (3,5).

I’ll make a list on this blog of the members who send me the correct answers.

Please comment below, to let me know if you like this type of puzzle. Too easy ? Too difficult ? Thanks. :o)))

If I’m given enough encouragement, I’ll make another photo quiz for while we’re all snowed in ! ;o)

List of winners … well done to …
