Before my yellow rose finally died, we made a little experiment, we put some food color to the water in the flower vase. Since the flower is old, it didn't do much colors on the petals but the anthers has colors in them. Some of the petals fell off when I tried to move the vase.
I never did this kind of experiment in school so I didn't know, thanks to hubby for sharing the idea.
The petals of the flower have a warm light yellow hue. It seems to be of spring, awaiting to be picked along with its stem to be a loving gift to a special person...ReplyDelete
First time I ever heard about that kind of experiment. Normally we just press the petals in a book to preserve it. You really love that yellow rose to have thought of prolonging its stay in your life, lol. Thanks for the experimental post. God bless you all always.ReplyDelete
Oh, yes, if you do this when the flower is freshly cut, it will take up lots of color. White flowers work best. White carnations are often colored blue, using this method.ReplyDelete

I didn't know about this kind of experiment with flowers! An interesting idea! And love the soft tones of colour and shadow, especially in the last photo!ReplyDelete
Smart experiment bading. galing ahh. kaya yun ibang may flower shop they color they flower like that siguro.ReplyDelete
I once did that to my water plant, I added food color too on the glass vase, just to make it looked different, the water became clearer as days pass, then I thought maybe the plant sipped the color. lol..ReplyDelete
oi galing..anong food color nilagay no rose, kahit ano lang?ReplyDelete
What a great idea. I love the soft colours of the petalsReplyDelete
What a great experiment! Must try it with my children.ReplyDelete
Nice try, it works better with some flowers than others.ReplyDelete
Fleshy stemmed flowers take up colour better than woody ones like roses.
aba, nag experiment ka na hihi.. galing naman.. hmmm, next time try other color.. happy weekend sis!!ReplyDelete

Petals of rose flowers are pretty.ReplyDelete
What an interesting technique. I've never tried that but will do so now that you've told us about it.ReplyDelete
I saw some perfectly formed green roses at a florist's. I think he had used the same technique.ReplyDelete
Interesting post and beautiful pictures.ReplyDelete
You did a great job sis.ReplyDelete

Wow, nice idea! Thank you for sharing it, Rose.ReplyDelete
It had a little specs of green in the petals of the flower. I have also learned something from a friend of mine on how to keep your plants to last a little bit longer. You mix a little bit of sugar and chlorox or chlorine in the water before you put the flower in the vase. The sugar acts as the food for the plants and the chlorox to fight the bacteria that makes it decay faster. This will preserve the flowers or plants in the vase a little bit longer. :)ReplyDelete
Will try that experiment too when our flower is about to wither. hahaha!ReplyDelete

Nice experiment. I'll try it :)ReplyDelete
We used to pick Queen Anne's Lace and add food color to the water. It would take on the hue.ReplyDelete
Eu já fiz esta experiência na escola! A Rosa branca ficou azul, porque a cor da tinta de alimentos era azul!ReplyDelete
I've done this with Daisy's and it seems to work really well. Fun experiment huh?!ReplyDelete
