Monday Mystery – Earth Day edition


Happy Earth Day, everyone! Shakespeare’s works have no shortage of mentions to the natural world. From weather patterns and ocean currents, to a wide classification of flora and fauna….the Bard could’ve been a budding naturalist! Take a gander at today’s nature-related Monday Mystery:

“When daisies pied and violets blue
And lady-smocks all silver-white
And cuckoo-buds of yellow hue
Do paint the meadows with delight.”

Which play is this quote taken from?

a) A Midsummer Night’s Dream
b) Love’s Labour’s Lost
c) Romeo and Juliet
d) Hamlet

(Bonus points if you can identify the speaker as well!)

Until next time,
