Flowers for Tuesday 4

Welcome to Tuesday 4 in honor of Toni Taddeo.
This week the subject is flowers.  I hope you are enjoying the memes. Let me know if there are topics you'd like me to cover.

1. Do you have a favorite flower?

Japanese Football Mums
I have a few I like. I like roses, lilies of all kinds, violets, black eyed Susans and giant Chrysanthemums.

2.Do you know your birth flower?

yes, it is the Chrysanthemum

Do you know your state's flower?  Yes, it is the violet.

3.Is there a plant you love having in your house or garden?

I like having pothos in the house as well as a prayer plant. Outdoors I love having wisteria, lilacs, roses and hydrangea.  I love my succulents that are in my garden as well. I just need a lot of more of them.

4.If you could plant a dream garden what would you place in it? 

Well, a pond and waterfall of course. A path with roses, a wisteria pergola, a fern garden and Black eyed Susan field.  I have accomplished most of this except for the rose path. And I have problems with up keep because I am disabled but, over all I think I love my garden.

Broken Glass

Happy Saturday as the month continues to fly on by so quickly.


Walking on Broken Glass (1992)

Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.


1) Annie sings that she feels she's walking on broken glass. What's the most recent item you broke?
It has really been a while since I broke anything but I regularly drop things that don't usually break.

2) She sings about being cut until she bleeds. Tell us about a time you needed stitches.
For spinal surgery I had quite a lot of them since the incision is about 10 inches long.

3) This week's featured artist, Annie Lennox, was born on Christmas Day. Do you know anyone whose birthday falls on a holiday?
My birthday and my daughter's sometimes fall on Thanksgiving Day.

4) When Annie met Dave Stewart, with whom she'd form the duo The Eurthmyics, she was living in Australia and staying in a tiny apartment called a bedsit. The occupant has his/her own combination bedroom/livingroom with cooking facilities, but must share a bathroom. Tell us about one of your early apartments.
My first apartment was my husband's first. It was pretty nice with 1 bedroom, bath, living room, dining room and a nice kitchen.

5) After the Eurythmics broke up, Annie went out on her own. Would you rather work independently, or as part of a group?
It depends on the job. Generally it is nice to be with others.

6) Among her many honors, Annie Lennox was named chancellor of Scotland's Glasgow Caledonia University. What's the last college campus you visited? What brought you there?
Ohio University in Athens, Ohio . I took my family to see  it. I am not sure if I visited Rutgers again lately or not. I went to both schools.

7) In 1992, the year this song was recorded, compact discs out sold cassette tapes for the first time. Back in the day, did you enjoy making your own mix tapes?
No. I was given some by friends though.

8) Also in 1992, Johnny Carson made his last appearance as host of The Tonight Show.  The catchphrase, "Here's Johnny!" was associated with the show. Can you think of another popular TV catchphrase?
 "To the moon, Alice!" from The Honeymooners which you can see on YouTube.
9) Random question: Think of your past week. Now look ahead to the coming week. Would you like it to be more, or less, exciting?
More exciting in a good way.

Tuesday 4 is now up for this week.
