These Roses are Ready for their Close-Up, Mr. DeMille!

Another year… another June…

R2R3

R4This 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…
