The Flower Two Puzzle has six dissimilar pieces and one solution. I found the solution to be very difficult due to the final sliding axis. One would naturally expect one half to be the bottom with the stem and the other to be the top with the flower. This is not so, and leads to many false starts. I would like to see this puzzle made with an extended stem from a green wood and a flower made from two high-contrastng woods.
