    Green Fingers

    Hidden into each sentence is a word that will typically be heard at flower shows, or in the chat of an enthusiastic gardener. Can you identify the word in each of the sentences!

    1. The harbour is always a welcome sight for storm battered ship!
    2. According to Mike, banana splits are the best sweet dish available.
    3. While on the water I cast my line to the rocky areas where the fish are hiding.
    4. When I faced the big brass I came to attention and saluted.
    5. When analyzing a cult, I vary my viewpoint often!
    6. The message marqueed across the moniter the entire day.
    7. The football hit Russel square between the eyes.
    Regards,
    Rudi

    If at first you do succeed, you&#39;ve probably missed something.

    Re: Green Fingers

    Well done Dave. I was wondering if I needed to give more clues to get the puzzle started....but your two answers are CORRECT and should set the trend for the other answers!

    Actually I cannot penalize you for that answer! I didn't spot that one....so I will give it to you! <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">Sage is a herb and it is to do with gardens etc!!!</span hide> Well done!

    The answer I have is: <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold"> Marqee (as in big garden tent!!)</span hide>

    Re: Green Fingers

    Any time Waggers old boy. I notice however, that Noodles did actually spell it with a 'u' in the original question...
