12:15 - oh, Kate. You're going to send me on a Search to find out what kind of blue flower this is ...

1. Note pairs 16 at g8/h7;79 at df9;78 at a56.Unique possibilities to 39.
2. If i1=7,h1=9,i3=8;i4 has no candidate.So g1=7.UP40.
3. If e8=5,e3=38.If e8=6=h7,h6=8=a5=e3.Hence pair 38 at ei3.UPs to 81.

Well, it's a close-up because the blossom is small. The blue eyed grass flower (Sisyrinchium) is native to the New World (North and South America), and can grow in zones 5-9.

Basic techniques to UP 39.

If h6=8, then 8 goes into a4,e3 and i1. But also e5=6, so h7=6, and there is no place for 1 on column h. So h6=6. UP 81.

Hi Jerki.After h7=6,can't h1 still=1? There is a contradiction a bit further along: d3=5,g2=2 and 12 have no place at a3. Regards,Alfred.

Plum, sure this is from the "New World", my guess would be "New Holland" (IE Australia), but I'm no botanist.

Hi Alfred,

Sorry. I left out a piece. After i1 is forced to be 8, we must place h1=9, because in the left bottom box there is no other place for a 9. My bad.

Thanks Jyrki.I should have seen that.Sorry I misspelt your name before.

Don't worry about my name :-) During my years in the US I gave up the struggle. Speakers of the English language simply are never exposed to this combination of spelling and pronunciation. The spelling as well as pronunciation is close to the German male name More...
