Monday’s Brain Teasers 10 26 09

Photo from Internet.
Monday, Monday. Time for the weekly brain teasers to get the engines jump-started. As always, the answers are true or false. On occasion, a trick question is put in to keep you awake. Are you awake yet? I’m doing my best to get this lively so in the spirit of Halloween, one candy question is permitted for those of us with a sweet tooth.

Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia 'Hidcote') was developed in France.

Winterberry is a deciduous Holly.

Snickers Candy Bars were the first wrapped penny candy in America.

Potassium increases a plant’s tolerance to change in temperature and it increases its resistance to diseases and pests.

Pumpkins & watermelon are in the same family.

With many of the Halloween decorations consuming us in the color orange, a fitting inspirational gardening thought of the day is from the movie, Legally Blonde. “Whoever said orange was the new pink was seriously disturbed.”
P.S. I have my orange and pink Halloween socks on my feet now!
