Wheelie Wednesday - Orange

Hi everyone. It's me, Autumn.
My favorite color is orange and I noticed that my orange poppy is in bloom!

 And so is the orange tiger lily!
 And my gazing ball is orange
 These are white Queen Anne's Lace. 
 Last week, our friend BJ told us that her gram used to cut Queen Anne's Lace and put them in a vase with food coloring.  So we did the experiment.
Guess what?
We now have orange Queen Anne's Lace!
It's magic!

See you all next Wednesday!

Love,
Autumn

We didn't know that you could change the color of Queen Ann's Lace by putting food coloring in the water! Your mom alwas has such interesting ideas!

Happy Wheelie Wednesday!

Cute experiment. I've done it with other flowers, but never Queen Anne's Lace. I'll have to try it.

What a clever thing you've done to the Queen Anne's lace! Amazing! Now you can just apply your fav color anytime. ;)

I just love your garden, around the year!

I learned my father was VERY allergic to QAL with that same experiment. Shame, because I love the effect!

Hi Autumn, very nice. You guys have a very nice garden. Hey Mitch, are you still doing "ob" classes?

That is so interesting!! Coloring Queen Ann's Lace!!!! Neat!!
Yes very exciting, a new dog and they were going to put her to sleep yesterday when I said I would foster a dog that saved her life. They know very little about her. She was found by a shelter volunteer wounding the streets. Don't know how she feels about a cat so that might be a problem.
