Monday Morning Brain Teasers 01 18 10

When you have snow and a holiday combined in one, it is a perfect winter Monday in New England. But if you were thinking about sleeping in, the Monday morning brain teasers are still on simmer; waiting for you to test your knowledge. The true and false answers are in tomorrow’s blog – Tuesdays with Annie.

1) There are two times of the year when the actual average temperatures significantly differ in North America.
2) It is a good practice to remove accumulated snow from tree limbs.
3) The flower Zinnia symbolizes freedom and good perspective.
4) Rhubarb was introduced to growers in Massachusetts by an unnamed Maine gardener.
5) Asparagus can be harvested in its first planting season.

In the spirit of Martin Luther King Day, it is fitting to have his words be the inspirational thought for the day. “Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.” Check for the answers tomorrow and if you live in Massachusetts, don’t forget to vote.
