The answer is now revealed for Find the Fault 3 – and here’s the next one. Can you spot the mistake in this picture? I’m not expecting you too struggle much this time, but if you relish the challenge there is undoubtedly at least one bonus point here as well as the main answer.

Find the Fault 4

Good luck! The answer is further down the comments.

    Well, that produced some good suggestions. The official answer is:

    Daffodils and brambles shown out at the same time whereas daffodils are Spring flowers and brambles ripen in the Autumn.

    So the point goes to pascal for the correct answer – even if he didn’t know what the flowers were! Dave and Ruth both got in with the same answer… but just too late.

    As for brambles and water – I can say from bitter personal experience that brambles definitely do grow near water. I’ve cleared enough ditches. I have also seen bramble dangling down into water and even setting roots into it (in fact I’ve been looking without success for a photo I had of some bramble doing this near Brading last year). So no points for that.

    And Tim – how do you know which way the river is flowing? No point for you. Nice try though.

    However a solitary well-earned bonus for The Wildlife Gardener for the bramble arrangement – no, they definitely do not grow like that!

    Next card is coming up soon.

    Also, blackberries grow in clumps on multiple stalks at the end of bramble stems, not in ones and twos along the main stalk??

    Another feeble attempt at a bonus point (apart from the blackberries/daffodils not appearing together): Brambles don’t grow that close to water margins??

    Daffodils and Blackberries at the same time? The leave on the bramble growing out of the sky look a bit odd too!

    Maybe something about the yellow flowers coming in spring, and the big red fruit (or flower?) on the tree coming in autumn? Also some leaves of the tree on the left are already yellow/brown.
    But I don’t recognize this tree.
    Also the clouds are strange, as if they were coming from the ground instead of being suspended in the sky.
