Moon Gardening Workshop

Thank you for the flowers!

I was given this great bunch of flowers after my latest workshop in Moon Gardening. Notice the new way they have of dyeing the rose and I found out that they split the stem and dip each split into different dye pots. The rose, quite naturally, does not like this and after dyeing.. it dies…. quicker than normal cut roses.

Apparently it is not new and one has been done before… so this new fashion trend is not so new at all. Then again, is any fashion really new.

Enjoy your day.
