Must be out of practice, these ones look, well, a touch on the tough side today... Still, let's see what a bit of quiet head-scratching produces, eh? 🤔

Thank you @Cleoriff @lewys-gp @pgn 

It`s great to be able to bring WRQ back.

A couple of the questions might be a bit tricky and need a bit of head scratching, although I have tried to give a mix with some easier questions.

 

To be honest, the flower question might be the hardest question in the quz, which I came up with after reading a book about the Victorians over the weekend.

Look forward to pms with the answers later and wish everyone good luck with this WRQ.

@Mi-Amigo 

Well now I thought the Victorian flower question was easy (having read a lot of books on victoriana topics.) Also watch a lot of Alan Titchmarsh. Just hope I have got it right Lol
