hey, did you know that there was a new patrick berry rows garden this past weekend in the wall street journal? you're welcome.
the constructor of this week's variety puzzle needs no introduction: brendan emmett quigley, by any measure one of the all-time great cruciverbalists.
the solvers have spoken: we're going back to the original ordering for bloom clues.
as you know, last week i reordered the bloom clue sets. some people immediately voiced their displeasure with this change, but i'm interested in hearing from everybody. that's why i'm running a poll with this week's rows garden. read on to find out how to vote.
i'm really excited about this week's variety puzzle: a vowelless crossword by andy kravis with some hot, hot fill. links after the jump.
two little announcements about today's puzzle: first, one of my test solvers pointed out that in the clue list, it would make more sense to list medium blooms before light blooms, since the top blooms in the grid are medium. i agreed, so i've made the change, starting now.
sam donaldson is back with another variety puzzle! links after the jump.
there's a very timely reference in one of the clues in this week's puzzle. if you end up solving it on a day that's not today, i guess take note of the date at the top of the puzzle.
