Stu from Gardening for Dummies has made up a meme. The idea is for people he's tagged to answer these questions. His answers are on his blog (linked from above), and I tag one or more people at the bottom of this post to answer the questions in turn. It's a good way to find out more about a person. Also, I had not had any brainwaves about a post this week, so this comes at a good time.
If I was only allowed to keep one plant in my garden which would it be?
The crepe myrtles (we have two so I think that's allowed as the one plant). They have a long flowering season with a magnificent color; even without leaves and flowers they still show off their beautiful bark; and as they are at the front of the house, they create a great entry to the property.
If there was only one thing invented in the past 100 years that I was permitted to keep, what would it be?
The automatic washing machine. Without that life would be too dreary, and you wouldn't have enough time to do other stuff.
Name 3 animals you saw yesterday (excluding cats and dogs).
1. dozens of ducks on the university campus where I work
2. the head and hind quarters of a rat one of my cats killed
3. (heard) a heron flying overhead
Which season do you like the most?
In Melbourne it has to be the autumn. The weather is very stable, still warm but with a hint of the changing season. And it means the footy season is back.
Name the person who inputed the most wisdom into your life?
My parents: Mom because she showed me the importance of family life, and Dad because he made me look at alternatives to what I thought were preordained paths for me to take.
I'm tagging the Other Val again.
