COMPETITION 3 – FLOWER QUIZ Something completely different this month. Below is a fiendishly difficult flower quiz, forty questions, each of which refers more or less obliquely, to the name of a flower. Have a go, there is no need to send in any responses, just make a note of them and the answers will be published at the end of this month. Why not try this with your Club? The question sheet can be downloaded direct from this link for you to distribute yourself; please email the Webmaster if you would like me to send you the quiz as a Word or .pdf document.
