There's something wrong....

The Husband picked up some flowers during his last trip to the grocery store and there's something...   odd...  about them.  See if you can tell what it is.

Can't see anything odd?  How about a closer view?

Still not seeing it?  Here's the BIG CLUE.

That's right.  There is some sort of dye that has leaked out of the flower stems and into the water.

WTF people?  There are plenty of nice, red colored flowers out there.  Why do you feel the need to dye a daisy-like flower red?  Because it's just after Valentine's Day?  Really?  

I've seen flowers of this shape with a red color that occurs naturally.  This is nothing new under the sun!  If you're going to make something artificial why not create something that doesn't already exist!  How far is it from fake colored flowers to flowers made of silk or plastic? 

I am so disappointed in the florist industry.

  1. Have you read "Flower Confidential" by Amy Stewart? All about the floral industry. I've got the book but haven't yet read it. Maybe I'll move it up in my reading rotation and then if you want it I'll send it to you. [I'm obsessed with books: owning them, trading them, trying to reduce my inventory of them so my husband won't divorce me -- my book collecting is really, really bad.]
