Congrats, Sless, both on your new kitchen and on winning the comp! =D>

Lovely photos, Global. I heard if you drive copper nails around the roots
of the hydrangea, that will also change the color of the blooms. :D

Thanks Betty Copper nails I wonder what colour that would produce?

Ok you chemists out there????
I have a vague recollection of mixing copper sulphate (which is used for gardening?) in a container and suspending a metal nail in the solution and it would apply a copper coating to the nail.
can anyone remember doing something like that when you was a kid?
How was a totally inorganic world able to create organic life? Answer it couldn't and didn't

As an avid gardener once explained to me, the copper nails can change
a blue to a pink or somewhere between, like a purplish color. :D
