*~ Mavisc52 ~ Sixpence ~ Doctor Bob ~ Lisa58 ~

~ Madperth ~ Gee19 ~ Bonkersbon’s Jane ~ Hywel ~

~ Okasia ~ David, Eilidh and James ~ Uma ~ Ponty ~

~ Megan75 ~* …Well done :o)

This is the final of my four winter puzzle blogs.

Some of you requested an easier quiz.

I hope you enjoy this one.

To complete the grid below, wordsearch each clue to find a plant, flower or tree with the correct number of letters to fit the boxes. The last letter of each answer has been entered to help you.

For those who need explanation of wordsearch, please look at this phrase:

Animals eating oats today.

Wordsearching that phrase, finds the word GOATS.

After completing all 17 answers, rearrange your letters in the green boxes to make a seasonal greeting. (5,3,4)

1. GoY is where lovely Amy has fantastic photos (3)

2. Our Polish friend, Okasia, certainly loves gardens (4)

3. Pretty flower borders ? Could be Annella’s design (4)

4. Many pics of Fiji from Panther, I can assure you (5)

5. Italy is very beautiful, as Terry60 would tell us (5)

6. We are pleased Uma has joined Grows on You (5)

9. In her pretty garden, Clarice plants many shrubs (8)

10. Could Wagger be raking the winter lawn today ? (7)

11. In 2010, will Owdboggy give us more fab pics ? (6)

12. We know of all the fun Gilli has, growing roses (5)

13. For wonderful wildlife pics, Deida is your girl (5)
