Dye Job

You've all seen these brightly colored daisies in the grocery store. Daisies do not come in blue like this but they can be dyed different colors. Although not a true daisy color, I liked the blue!

Exif: F Number: 14, Exposure Bias Value: 0.00, ExposureTime: 4/10 seconds, Flash: did not fire., ISO: 200, White balance: Manual white balance, FocalLength: 105.00 mm, Model: NIKON D700

It is an eye pleasing shade of color and the yellow heart pops right out. Beautiful.
Two days in the deep freeze. Waiting to hear from Shirley's sister crying about how cold it is down there.
