Crossword Puzzles

Crossword Puzzles are popular on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean; I am unsure what their popularity is across the world.  They challenge the mind, and are a challenge from the designer to the receiver.  On a annual basis I produce a crossword puzzle.  I started this tradition back in 2016.  To get through my Crossword Puzzles you really need to know the plants in my garden from the last year, the varieties that exist, and have read the last 12 months of Journal Entries, but you also need to know different meanings and references to/of words.  Consider the word: Masquerade.  What interpretations of word are there?  Some times the answer is almost in front of you, while others you'll need to fit the words together; in other words I use BOTH North American and European style clues.  I also play fair enough to let you know when more than one word is involved.  In very rare cases I might add an abbreviation to help you.  Clue [number of words, abbr: ????]

I would have loved to present these interactive, but because of costs and issues with the technology I had to drop that idea.  My crosswords are created in CrossWord Forge, which in turn are pushed through several transformations to this presenation.  Rather than using a black background for these I use a white one.  The webpage layout is also different than any of the other pages of this site to accommodate old fashioned(?) printer printing.  The answers are on the next page out ... no cheating now!
