Tinting Flowers

Last night four of the six grandbabes spent the night – Mallory & Clara already had plans to go with Rick & Emma to the high school football game – and we tinted some flowers.  Normally we do this every summer with Queen Anne’s Lace that grows in abundance up & down our road, but this year I just never thought about it until the flowers had come & gone.  So this week when I was in the grocery I noticed they had their cut flowers on sale, so I got a few for us to try.  Here is June putting her flower in the yellow food coloring that she chose to color her first one.get-attachment

 

We checked before we went to bed – just a couple of hours after we’d started the process – & they were already starting to show signs of some color.  The kids were SO excited.  Good times 🙂get-attachment
