Daisies Don't Work


Last week's science experiment was putting carnations in food-colored water and watching the petals slowly take on the color. Unfortunately, we couldn't find carnations. Can you believe it? Isn't that the grocery stores' best seller? Not ours, apparently. Well, we thought, daisies are white; they'll probably work just as well. Nope. Nope. Nope. We even had eight different colors, including *neon*! But they all stayed white, white, white. So... next time, carnations.
