Daffodils + food coloring = Pretty science

Remember using food coloring to "color" daffodils when you were a kid? I always thought it was amazing. I recently picked a few blooms to show the kids. 

I'm not sure how amazed they were but I still think it's pretty darn cool. 

Have you never done this? Go pick a few daffodils before they are all gone! Fill a vase with water, add a few drops of food coloring (I have the best luck with blue and green), trim the stems to allow for better water absorption and wait a bit. I think it will also work with daisies and carnations. 

Next experiment — try for two colors.


We're messy — vote for us!

I've entered the Get Messy Contest hoping to win a new kitchen or at least some great Mrs. Meyer's products. You can help by voting every day between now and April 18. Normally I shy away from these type of popularity contests but I think we have a good chance of winning. Look at that face! You know you want to vote for him. Pretty please?

Back story: We were making donuts. Joseph loves to make donuts. And eat donuts. Most recent batch turned out more like warm beignets so I sprinkled them with powered sugar. Soooo good.
