  1. I got 11 right, enough to qualify, I guess. πŸ˜…
    Disappointed there was no plane tree leaf, but I would have confused it with maple tree so I should be glad about that. I enjoyed the quiz, I really like the pics! πŸ˜ƒπŸ’š
    Looking forward another one, actually. πŸ˜‰

  2. ARghh. I got 11 correct, but found out the name of a plant I needed to id, it’s sad and I don’t know why. The fatsia… I am terrible at remembering names of plants and flowers. Great quiz, wonderful pictures and your garden leaves.
