Ooh Pretty … Rainbow Roses

I’m not the type of woman that oohs and ahhs at flowers. Basically because they die, tend to grow mold, and are kind of smelly. But even I have to admit to being mesmerized by rainbow roses. These roses in colors of the rainbow or a crayon box are created by splitting a rose stem into several “pipes” and dipping each one into a different colored water. The roses absorb the water and transfer the color to the petals. It’s a similar effect to the chrysanthemum and food coloring experiment that elementary school science teachers favor. Rainbow roses were developed in Holland and run about $55 to $325. [The Fun Times Guide via Impact Lab]
