Rainbow Blooms

Tilly's Nest- colored carnations-001

Winter has been hanging on this year and despite the fact that spring is less than 10 days away. We still have snow on the ground and are expecting more tonight. During these final winter days, I love to fill my home with fresh blooms. Somehow they get me over the final hump as I anticipate getting into my gardens. These rainbow blooms did not disappoint.

 I found some beautiful white carnations at the grocery store and added them to a recycled glass jar. They were pretty enough, but looked blah with the snowy white backdrop. What they needed was a pop of color. Out came the food coloring and some creativity with the kids. By morning, we were greeted with the loveliest blooms. A rainbow had appeared! If I hadn’t made these with my kids, they probably would have believed that a leprechaun might have had something to do with it!
