Well that was interesting and I definitely learned some new things. I only got 2 out of 5 right but the questions were great because they were all things I wanted to learn about. Thanks Cher, that was fun.

I based my guesses on plants and flowers indigenous to Texas, and only scored a 3/5. Still have lots of butterflies, birds, frogs, lizards, salamanders and bunnies. Though the bunnies are not out and about yet.

3/5 I was having to guess as I live in North Central Alberta, and we can't grow a few of these. Learned something new though. Thank Cher.

I scored only fare..One comment. The first frame listed Foxglove. This plant is a killler to ALL animals. Deer know this, and keep away from it - hopefully. This is what Digitalis, a heart med is made from. If eaten, the animal will go into cardiac arrest. I buried a rabbit who chewed on a leaf.
The plant is beautiful, but , consider another method in keeping deer out of your garden. Believe it ot not, urine, splashed on plants does keep deer away- IF you chose not to buy animal urine, and use your own....having a beer or two before only adds to a deer's disgust.

4 out of 5. Would have liked to have seen the pix but they were redXed out.I have a wall full of Wegelia and have lavender in my herb garden and in spring they are alive with bees, butterflies and hummingbirds. I also put out 3 hummingbird feeders and I could tell you stories about my two cats and those hummingbirds. Thx for the fun post Cher.

Too focused on northern hemisphere-American flora&fauna for me, though great fun anyway!

Well my garden is very wild, but doesn't have any of these plants, I'm in Australia! Our native plants and animals are soooo different to those in the Americas, but so very, very beautiful.

One out of five. That shows how little I know about nature. Oh, well.
