I think it's a great way to get us through the winter, have a little fun, and learn something in the process. I am enjoying them, even though I rarely get any of them correct. :lol:
I also think that if someone else doesn't want to do them anymore.....then just don't click on that post......but keep it going for the rest of us who are having a good time with it. (that is if you are willing to continue posting them, Ren. :wink: )

I've not made many guesses, but it is fun seeing plants as they emerge.
I say continue!

While I haven't submitted any guesses, it's a fun exercise and for a newbie like me it's very educational.

Thanks for all of the positive comments everyone!! :P I honestly didn't know if people were getting sick of these or not. For me, seeing all the fresh greens helps to know we'll have spring again. We've had plenty of snow & cold this winter.

So far there have been 17 who want to keep going & just 2 who said 10 was enough. So I guess I'll keep going. :wink:

I haven't been guessing because I'm usually clueless. I have been enjoying the pics, watching the guesses and waiting for the correct answers.

Keep it going! :D

Yes, I'm enjoying the pix but it's too hard to ID hosta just immerging. Please post some fully leafed out hosta so we can all feel smart. :lol: What do we get if we guess right?

The satisfaction that you've done well, Mary Ann. :P :wink: The fun is in the challenge. I'd have trouble IDing a lot of these if they weren't in my own garden. LOL So I'm impressed with everyone's efforts whether they're right or wrong. :D

I will be working on some other pics before long.
