### Puzzle #7 Solution

RG2015.7 Hardest/Harder - Solution

RG2015.7 Easier/Easiest - Solution

B2 (and its accompanying clue) was the seed, and I also liked the entries as B2, D2, and I2, as well as the clues to D2, H1, and J2. I didn't like that the first three Medium blooms (crossing the Row A entry) as well as the first three White blooms were all similar in that they all started either in the top left triangle of the bloom or the bottom right. These are the easiest way to work with blooms in constructing the puzzle, and also the easiest to work with while solving; as it's the natural inclination to see those three-letter halves as the start or end of the bloom, so I like to change them up (see the ABUSES bloom in Row B, where the A starts in the bottom left and ends in the bottom center of the bloom - it's harder to parse that bloom from a solving standpoint). Sorry if this doesn't make much sense.
