Monday Morning Brain Teasers 03 22 10

We have time change withdrawal, nasty weather, and a Monday morning – what a combo for waking up on the bright side. So let’s get rolling with those Monday morning brain teasers. As always, the answers are true, false or once in a while, a trick question but you need to read ‘Tuesdays with Annie’ tomorrow to get the skinny. No fruits today. Instead, let’s work with some spring line-up questions as the season is literally on our doorstep.

1) Tulips, one of our favorite flowers of spring, originated in the Netherlands.

2) If the tip of the Forsythia cane makes contact with the soil, the cane will generate roots.

3) Two major minerals in maple syrup are potassium and calcium.

4) Winter Hazel (Corylopsis), not to be confused with Witchhazel, is an early blooming deciduous shrub related to the Witchhazel.

5) Asian-type Magnolias bloom before its leaves form on the tree. (Photo above - by Greg Bilowz)

Despite all the things that make this Monday morning a bit tougher than usual, we shall not find ourselves in Alfred Polgar’s dilemma. “Too often man handles life as he does the bad weather. He whiles away the time as he waits for it to stop.” Let’s do something productive today. One thing you can do is join our fan page where you can get additional tips, photos, links and a place to join a discussion. Have a great Monday.
