Fuschia and Pink Carnations - Dye Them Yourself

photo credit Lucas Allen

Remember the science lesson when you put celery in a glass of colored water to see how plants drink water?

The same principle applies to white carnations (and other plants for that matter).  They will turn into the color of water that you soak them in. 

Now, go grab some white carnations or daisies.  Make sure you trim them before you soak them in colored water.  Better yet, have your children try to guess what will happen when you put them in the colored water.  Enjoy these pretty little things.

I remember doing this in Girl Scouts once. Fun idea, I will have to get some for Valentine's Day . . . I am so NOT a roses girl.
