Monday Morning Brain Teasers: 10/19/09

After another tussle with a winter-like day, the meteorologists promise a beautiful run of New England fall weather. Use these warm, seasonal temperatures to finish up the garden chores. To get you in the mood for that final stretch of gardening, don’t forget to take the Monday morning quiz. The answers will be in tomorrow’s blog.

True or False

1) All hardy Asters flower only in the fall.

2) The American Chestnut trees were one of the primary timber trees in New England.

3) The chainsaw cutting tooth design was inspired by beavers.

4) Sir Edwin Landseer Lutyens was the founding father of American landscape architecture.

5) Granite is a sedimentary rock.

The inspirational gardening thought for the day keeps in theme with our quiz format. It is a question/answer quote from Groucho Marx. “Q: What do you get when you cross an insomniac, an agnostic, and a dyslexic?A: Someone who stays up all night wondering if there is a Dog.”

Don’t worry. It’s Monday. It took at least another sip of coffee and 30 seconds for me to get it. Have a great day. Annie
