Mea culpa on flower quiz

Re Flower quiz, pg 22 of January 2017 issue.


I'm afraid you are incorrect about the last flower you described in the quiz as raspberry. I'm pretty sure it is a blackberry. 


I grow both blackberries and raspberries. I looked online and I found the blossom under raspberry blossoms that you have in The Grower. The same group of photos has blackberry flowers mixed in.


I still say blackberry. The leaf in the photo is very sparse and coarse. Also raspberries don't have the pronounced green unpollinated fruit that sticks out.  Also, most raspberries have yellow stamens. 


I look forward to your pub every month for many, many years. Keep up the good work.
