Okay, while I’m still out there, here are a few games. The first game is to tell the family of these plants. It’s rather easy, and as a hint I was about to make regular posts in spring (alas, blog gone wrong).
As a second game, please try to guess what species these plants belong to. This is more difficult if you happen not to like botany and/or live outside Europe, though not impossible (Since I’m not that bad, you can still follow the links to FlickR to get the answers in case you turn desperate about these wonderful flowers).
Finally, I suggest that you vote which species you would like to see as a subject of blog posts here, so that I have homework when I return… Play in comments!
Species # 1. Not a green!
Species # 2. Precious hint on family!
Species # 3. A common beauty ;-)
Species # 4. The rare surprise!
