Another year… another June…
This year the rose garden at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden had received a “hard cut”, as we heard a passerby explain. Which made it still lovely but less lush than in years past. So I’ll focus on the close-up in this post.
And of course we’ll include a rosy little musical quiz, answers strewn among the tags below. (Warm-up question, which 1920’s tune begins with the above quoted lyric “another year, another June…”?)
Rose petaled question #1: For which movie did Bette Midler receive her first Academy Award Best Actress nomination? Bonus question, which movie provided her second?
Rose petaled question #2: Which blonde rock icon is duetting with Beth Ditto on “A Rose By Any Name”?
Wait, only roses?! That’s discriminatory! There are other buds out here worthy of close-ups too!
Rose petaled question #3: In which movie did this Rose let go, even though she swore she would never let go (and which English Rose played her)?
Rose petaled mega question: Name at least 9 award winning divas of stage and screen who have played Mama Rose in Gypsy on stage or screen.
Bye bye, Roses, and friends…
