ROGUE RIDDLE #1076 - Launched May 23, 2021 @ 12:30pm central

Submit all guesses, gripes, groans & guffaws directly to <gary@hallock.net>

Below you will find a series of 10 short sentences, each containing one or more BLANK spaces. Into each BLANK you should be able to insert the name of a flower (or flowers) which will more-or-less satisfy the punned implication of the set-up. (Yes, some answers will be plural, bouquet?)

Because it was a bit of a stretch anyhow, I have sacrificed one riddle as a Sample Question for inspirational purposes. Be the first to send me a private reply with all (or most) of the required floral names, and win yourself the honor of hosting Rogue Riddle #1077 next weekend.

When responding, please do so (privately) in the form of a full worksheet, as I have not bothered to memorize all these names and numbers myself. Collecting and recording your progress in a single email will make it much easier for me to keep and report your score.
