Even more from the daffodils

Now that the daffodils are out in force in my garden I picked one to make another colour experiment. This time with red food colouring and straight into the water the moment I put the flower in. And tataa within a few hours the veins showed up red. The cat and I were impressed. Big monkey - not so. When I showed her, she said, oh, yes in a way only a six year old going onto 15 can. Those schools, they do too much with them. How can I impress her with those little things? (I'm not really complaining.) Granted I never even thought of dyeing a daffodil but still... It reminds me of the garish coloured gerberas though. Who in their right mind thought it would be a good idea to turn those pretty flowers blue? Haven't seen them in a while, maybe they saw sense.
Anyhow, big monkey dressed up in spring colours for school today, we spent a long time looking for THE t-shirt with the bunnies from Grandma. Why is it that the thing one searches for is always at the furthest most place in the drawer hiding behind some garment that's too small?

  1. At least it was clean and wasn't the too small garment. Did you take photos of your Daffodils?
