Violets are red, roses are blue…just checking to see if you are awake this morning. There is always a possibility with new cultivars and plant development that maybe we do have red violets and blue roses out there somewhere. Monday morning brain teasers are a true and false format so grab your cup of coffee and let’s get those brain neurons moving.
1) Orchids prefer a variation of moisture conditions from wet periods to a gradual drying period.
2) Onions are often used in science education.
3) Onions should be stored in the refrigerator.
4) An oak is a tree or shrub in the beech family (Fagaceae).
5) Olive trees are not drought tolerant and do not live long lives.
What is the one, consistent letter throughout the brain teasers? For those who guessed the letter, an A+ for being on the ball. The inspirational thought for the day is a simple Japanese Proverb to start your week. “One kind word can warm three winter months.”
