Puzzle Corner: Happy Families Solution

How did you get on matching the flowers, fruit and vegetables to their respective plant Families? I hope you had some fun whilst doing so.

The answers are:

  • Amaryllidaceae - snowdrop and onion
  • Apiaceae - Eryngium and parsnip
  • Asteraceae - dahlia and lettuce
  • Fabaceae - lupin and pea
  • Polygonaceae - Persicaria and rhubarb
  • Rosaceae - hawthorn and strawberry

Which pairing surprised you the most?

Well done if you spotted that by putting the pictures into alphabetical order, I'd given you three of the pairs already.


  1. Dahlia and lettuce! Unbelievable! Groetjes Hetty

  2. Yes, the dahlia lettuce combo surprised me as well. Good fun, though. Thanks.

  3. Hi Hetty and Sheena - that's the combination that surprised me the most too, so I HAD to include it. I glad you enjoyed the puzzle - they're great fun to put together in the winter months :)
