"If it's Tuesday, it must be . . ." tumblr. Week Ten

Another Tuesday has arrived, and yes, if it's Tuesday at TLLG, it must be tumblr, but before I send you there, I'll remind you that it is also the last Tuesday in November! You certainly would not surmise that it is this late in the calendar year from the happenings in my urban (NYC) terrace garden, as evidenced by the photograph of my Helichrysum bracteatum AKA Strawflowers, above (which I took yesterday).
I have written about this fun-loving annual in previous blog entries on TLLG, which you may access by clicking here. Additionally, an array of images of it are featured on a set in my Flickr Gallery which you may view by clicking here.

As you can see in the image above, the older flower is kissing its new sibling, just as yours truly did to her younger sibling many moons ago, when we were caught by my mother's camera in the picture posted below.



This is an image which you might recognize from a blog entry I made this past March (and you may refer to it by clicking here). I am including it today, Tuesday, because I was born on a Tuesday, and, therefore, according to the Mother Goose poem*, I am supposedly "full of grace", although I am certain family and friends woud dispute that notion. My sister, was born on a Thursday, and was a child who according to the poem "had far to go" — which she has done and is still doing.

The aforementioned poem goes like this:


Monday's child is fair of face,
Tuesday's child is full of grace,
Wednesday's child is full of woe,
Thursday's child has far to go.
Friday's child is loving and giving,
Saturday's child works hard for a living,
But the child born on the Sabbath Day,
Is fair and wise and good in every way.



Which day of the week were you born, dear reader? If you were born after the year of 1582, you may click here for a formula to help you determine your information,  and if you were born before 1582, then kudos to you for reading my blog!

However, whether you were born before or after 1582, today is still Tuesday, it must be tumblr, so please click here to go there.
