MINSTER QUIZ 2019 ANSWERS

 SAY IT WITH FLOWERS

 

I am pleased to report that Peterborough Minster Rotary Club’s Say it with flowers quiz will have raised £750 for us to spend on charities we support. I received 65 completed forms back and nine of them were all correct. The winner, Mrs Heather Brown from Stamford, was drawn out of the hat by President Chris Browne.

Clue 9 Leave a graze and this might happen caused most problems with 31 entrants deciding that scabious was the answer and one creative mind entering micropus, but the answer I was looking for was selfheal.

Clue 45 Path for a life of ease and leisure was primrose, not marigold, livelong, purslane, agrimony or money tree all of which were creative but not right.

Clue 46 Culinary flavouring for Peel wasn’t wild garlic, corn cockle, mock orange or robert herb but herb robert.

Clue24 Burn some hair produced haresear, firebush, burnweed, burntuft all creative but I was looking for charlock.

Clue 40 Raise money to eat also produced some interesting alternative answers, buckwheat, moneytree, pennywort and agrimony but I was looking for celandine.

There were alternative answers that I accepted.

Clue 15 Tough pates I was looking for hardheads but also accepted skullcaps.

Similarly clue 16 Spider or Rhesus bloom I was looking for monkey flower but also accepted monkey orchid.

Clue 49 Leggy bird’s beak was cranesbill but I accepted storksbill and heronsbill.

Near misses included chickpea instead of chickweed and blue basil instead of wild basil but I don’t recall any bad language when Basil attacked his car.

Many thanks to all entrants who exercised their brains and for your intelligent responses, that made marking the quiz an enjoyable task. Many thanks to Colin Moore who did all the printing free of charge and my fellow rotarians and friends who sold the quizzes. Look out for another quiz just before Christmas.

Keep on quizzing Brian
