If I'd taken a little longer & thought in terms of flowers, I'm sure I would've gotten some of them. Great, though! Made me think.

4 out of 5. Fun! Thanks.

Good one Got 4 out of five
labsmith*um*
Aug 31, 2006

A refreshing teaser. I easily got the first four. Never figured out orchid but spent a long time on it. When I saw the answer I felt exactly like ceeyaa.

I loved your concept and topic. Please keep writing teasers like this one. Thanks a lot!
QrystalAca*
Aug 31, 2006

Whewee! I did it! I got them!!

I didn't know what foppish was either, but I decided to let myself look it up -- dictionary.com, not thesaurus.com, so I didn't feel like I was cheating.

I almost gave up on #5... but I had half of it, the kid part, and I knew I had to just keep thinking about it.... and I thought, and thought... "indicates an alternative" -- choice? selection? hmm... alternative... this OR-- aha aha aha.

Anyways, this little schpiel from my head was brought to you by the letter Q.

Mostly easy ones, but dandy-lion got me. Just could not think of a lion. Puma, lynx, panther, tiger and a host of others came to mind, but not lion.

Sep 02, 2009

The first 4 I got immediately; the 5th I had to mull over for a moment and then got it! Thanks for the teaser!
Babe*
Sep 02, 2012

I loved this one. I got them all but the last one. I got the kid part, but got hung up on "other" instead of "or" Really enjoyed it though.

Eh, no ones counting, right?
