AHHHH! Mad science and fine arts...bravo!


I love how you substituted items on hand for the lab supplies! Bravo, great experiment that would be lots of fun to try with all sorts of flowers. I'm a big fan of combining art and science. I remember a watercolor I did that tried to represent the concept of refraction--it didn't work out so well, but it was a brave effort.


Oh, this is just so wonderful, in SO many ways!
And I've been trying to figure out what to wrap around the branches of a Mountain Ash tree that the woodpeckers have been pecking at for sap. A friend recommended strips of fabric, but I'm liking that knitted crepe paper idea. Time constraints may decide it.


Amazing... inspiring...
I can't wait to try a similar experiment with some flowers from our yard ~ and ~ maybe it is time to learn some crocheting. That test tube? too cute!


Thank you so much for making this so very clear to me, I always thought lavender was violet too.


lavender IS blue! i seem to have a strange concept of colour sometimes but i completely agree with you on this. i saw the paper...


And thanks also for the Burl Ives inspiration. I had forgotten about this version and am listening to it on Youtube. He's got the mellowest voice--great for background work music!

Great experiment Margie!!!
Now I want to do that with every flower! What a great thing to do! And the little crochet sleeve for hanging for a test tube is just adorable! It makes me look at the test tube in a completely different way! You always come out with the best ideas!
Thank you!!!
Elsita :)
