If you get stumped, Google might help…..

Hi Bluespruce...
Do you like the quiz ?
Lady in pic. number one is lovely GoY member "Bloomer" :o)

21 Dec, 2009

 

Looks good Tt, but as you know flowery things are not my strong point :0)

21 Dec, 2009

 

I will try and have a go, TT, in between baking sausage rolls, cheese straws, mincemeat cake, etc etc. but it does look a bit difficult :(

21 Dec, 2009

 

Lol.. I made this because of the complaints that my previous crossword blog was considered too easy.. :o)

21 Dec, 2009

 

Terratoonie I have most of the answers( thanks to google)but still working on solving the rest its not easy.

21 Dec, 2009

...maybe BB will have some ideas on the last couple of clues ?

21 Dec, 2009

 

Will have to check with him when he gets in AFTER he s had his tea Lol
Q 13 is stumping me..at first thought of Bonsai as I knew he used to push the lawnmower,but only 6 letters...grr ! Got one of the members names though ! Lol

21 Dec, 2009

 

Yes, I think most people will work out the shorter name first. :o)
Good idea to leave a couple of clues for BB... then it will be a joint effort. Lol.

21 Dec, 2009

 

Well Terra I know the answers to 1 and 10 amazingly, but somehow I fear that's it! Look forward to seeing who gets there first.
