How often will you found something useful at a car-boot sale? Well, for once The Ranger did. When I came home clutching a little box called ‘Find the Fault’ I was fully prepared to have wasted

    A good point – but the day I see that on an apple I will be worried. Perhaps it’s only a matter of time?

    Is there a fault these days? I haven’t seen it on apples, true, but the last couple of years a rowan near us has born a second flush of blossom whilst the fruit is ripe, as has an elder in the garden.

    I thought the fault was that peaches don’t grow on an apple tree…

    nope, the path’s not straight, unless of course the cottage is owned by a habitual drunk, in which case a meandering path could be useful!

    the two apples and blossoms on the right are floating in mid-air with no connection to the tree!

    Well done! The official answer on the card is:

    1. Ripe apples and blossoms do not appear on the tree at the same time.

    So Jocelyn wins the prize for No. 1. And several honourable mentions for others. Special bonus marks, however, to those pointing out errors not on the cards, so two of these this time to Jocelyn (again) for spotting the wrong number of petals on the flower (verified in the canonical Francis Rose), and to Tim Frost for the missing door-handle!

    I hope you’ll keep score as I’m not going to!

    The picture is definitely to do with the blossom and fruit. Think I have seen this somewhere before, let’s have some more.

    I would go with the blossom/fruit thing too. Or you shouldn’t plant trees so close to your house…

    Patience – there are 15 more yet to come. Let’s see if anyone else wants to have a go first…

    The fault is that apples and blossoms wouldn’t be on the tree at the same time. Also, unless I’m very much mistaken, apple blossoms have 5 petals. What fun! Gimme another!
