Really? What on earth were they thinking? Take a perfectly good rose and turn it into this hideous specimen! There is no pot of gold at the end of this rainbow.
Sadly, this artificial coloring of perfectly good blossoms isn't limited to tacky supermarket bouquets. Bona fide horticulturists have jumped on the trend. While I admit I don't "get" orchids, this one is just freaky:
Take a perfectly acceptable white orchid, add blue dye, and voila, spawn of the devil is born. But look on the bright side - the fine print warns us not to expect blue flowers in new blossoms.
Remember floral fiddler-arounders, just because you can, doesn't mean you should!! Enough said.
