Re: TD 327 - Pictures' Revenge! - Q2 REVEALED

I stayed away from answering "beef stew" because it was a soup category. I figured there was something in the picture I wasn't noticing that would tell me what kind of beef soup.

Talk about over thinking something...

Bouillabaisse — Singleton!

Yikes. There is very little visual difference between bouillabaisse and cioppino, but it looks like cioppino generally has a darker broth. Guess I shoulda gone with the beef stew.
Sprinkles are for winners.

Beef Stew was one of the only ones I recognized but I stayed away from it because it seems like there are a lot of similar dishes.

A reluctance to spell "bourguignon" was a factor in my own decision.

I waffled between paella and bouillabaisse and decided to play it safe with miso.

2/2 sheep so far :?

I almost went for the bonus on the flowers but I would have said orchid instead of iris, so I'm glad I decided against it.

I'd have said that for all but sunflower and rose. Definite weak area for me.

Re: TD 327 - Pictures' Revenge! - QUESTION 6 UP!

Postby immaf » Fri Jan 20, 2017 9:09 am

The only thing I got wrong on my bonus attempt was rhododendron, for which I said azalea. The two are virtually identical except that rhododendrons tend to be larger (and have 10 stamens instead of 5). There wasn't much in that picture to give a sense of scale. It could, if you squint, be a picture of a large azalea. Any chance I can get credit for a successful bonus?

It won't make much difference in the standings, for I am immaf, the worst.TD. player. ever.
Teems with quiet fun.

The two are virtually identical except that rhododendrons tend to be larger (and have 10 stamens instead of 5). There wasn't much in that picture to give a sense of scale. It could, if you squint, be a picture of a large azalea. Any chance I can get credit for a successful bonus?

It won't make much difference in the standings, for I am immaf, the worst.TD. player. ever.


Worst? Well, you'll be ahead of me if our host does that. But I do support your endeavor to get the bonus (they're also from the same genus - just one level above species).

Regarding the flower bonus, I submitted for this. And according to my memory, I got it right. I don't think I can check since I submitted through Google forms, but could you check? It was exciting to take the risk, even knowing I might be wrong, but I was quite confident.
Thanks!

Woo Hoo! Finally something in my wheelhouse. Rhododendrons and azaleas are almost identical, but I went with the leaves - I think rhododendrons have larger leaves. But I'm no botanist, so maybe someone else has a better way to differentiate.

I said hydrangea. In the distance photo, they looked almost exactly alike to me. Per Wikipedia, "The flowers of some rhododendrons and viburnums can appear, at first glance, similar to those of some hydrangeas." The multicolored flowers also threw me off - it's common to see both pink and purple or blue blossoms on the same hydrangea bush, but I'd never seen that on a rhododendron.
