A rose by any other.......color?!

Grace brought home a weekly reader explaining how to make roses change color.
Now I have done this trick before, but I had never tried to make a rose change to multiple colors.

We felt we were up to the challenge so I picked up a bunch of white roses at Kroger.

After carefully slicing the stems we placed them in multiple glasses of colored water.

Within an hour the colors could be seen appearing.
By the end of the second day we had some very unusual looking flowers.

The kids were excited by the many color combinations we created.

We declared the experiment a success.

Bonus:  I got to enjoy a dozen roses even if I had to buy them myself!!
