As promised, here is my list of brain teasers for Monday morning. If you experienced the hard frost last evening, I hope you protected your tender plants or brought them indoors. If you were lucky and didn’t lose those delicate botanicals, get them inside tonight. It was pretty darn chilly in Denver yesterday and it wasn’t just the Patriot’s loss that made it feel that way. Those cold temperatures are headed east.

Here are the questions:
The Silversword plant, a rare and endangered species is only found on the island of Maui.
Peaches are in the Rosaceae (Rose) family.
Thorns are modified leaves.
Bananas are in the corn family.
Barren Strawberry (Waldsteinia), an underrated and extremely useful ground cover is part of the Primulaceae - The Primrose Family.
In the spirit of Christopher Columbus, the inspirational gardening thought of the day is by Arthur Goldberg. “If Columbus had an advisory committee he would probably still be at the dock.” No advisory committees for answering the questions. Answers will be in tomorrow’s blog.
