Sunday puzzler: April 3

If I get myself organised I will make this a regular Sunday post to tease you as you have your Sunday tea and toast. All you have to do is identify the plants* and take the first letter of each and arrange them to make the name of an Irish County.

Answer tomorrow.

Good luck!





* You need to use the botanical name of the genus, not a common name. This is because common names vary. But it is just the genus, nothing else:

For example

vinca major varieg2

… this would be vinca, not periwinkle. And you don’t need to know what vinca it is.

Answer tomorrow – but message with your answer now!

    Great puzzle, Geoff. I got the names fro The Head Gardener and used my crossword setting skills for the rest: Meath

    Derrick got there before me. It has been miserable over the last few days. Enjoy your visit to the Clonmel G.C. on Wednesday.

    Meath, I guess I will never be first as I am a late riser! Weather Very frustrating as I was away for most of the lovely gardening weather.

      Never mind – as long as you don’t scroll down you can still do it 🙂 Yes the weather is horrible – lucky I have a lot of writing to do!
