Gratuitous Pretty Pictures, Revisited...

Thanks for all the enthusiasm about our science project! It's always nice to know that I'm not the only one getting excited over the simple things...



A day later, there are some color changes, although not as dramatic as I remember when using carnations. The blue and the green are the most noticeable. The red has only come through in blotches - which makes it look like the poor flower has some sort of hideous pox.

I am not sure what kind of flower we are using. (Which is hardly surprising - I am quite botanically challenged!)
They were inexpensive and white- my two main criteria...
Maybe some sort of mum?
I think the sticker that came on them said something helpful like "asstd bqt"...

Blue

Green

So glad you included 'after' pictures! Although I want to see the 'poxed' one too. These are definitely chrysanthemums. No idea what variety, tho.

Let's hear it for science projects!

Hey, look at my pix (from our garden) on my Feb 22 post!
And also, have a great time with Autum. I'm jealous ... :) I don't know Autum but I really really like her :) She's always commenting nice things, even tho I'm not as crafty as her :)
Cheers!

I think that they are mums too. Pretty cool though even if not as dramatic as you expected.
