Boahh, too difficult for me...
Yes, RB you are right.
Not at least a capsule and an ornamental leaf in the background?

The golden days of the forum are over

Post by MWP admin » Mon Oct 20, 2008 2:25 pm

The reason of this quiz was actually to wake up the others (as I thought it was easy-ish) , but everyone seems busy!

More interestingly some 12-15 members has joined these 3 months and from them collectively, maybe there were 5 posts ?!?
The golden days of the forum seems over, but I keep it open for the time being.

I am identifying my stufff from books and internet (much less fun) as it appears that the scope of the forum is lost. Well, i am working on a grass from gozo for ID and I' ll post it here maybe it is interesting.



The plant was the fruit of Cochlicum cupanii - soon (or already) flowering!
