Inspired by neon blooms

January 24, 2012 | Inspired by...

I picked these lovlies up at the market the other day.. aren’t they stunning?? I was having a hard time deciding which flowers to purchase (from the hundreds that seem to have appeared overnight for Chinese New Year), when suddenly.. there they were, in all their neon pink glory. Of course that was the end of the discussion, and I took 6 of them home with me (along with a cockroach that decided to make an entrance only after we were safely concealed within the car – and then.. disappeared).


It turns out they aren’t naturally this colour unfortunately.. there was pink dye all over the newspaper they came in, revealing that they’d probably been sitting in buckets of pink water to create this brilliant colour. Oh well.. works for me!


  1. pretty color, even if it’s not real!

  2. wow that flower is real? incredible.. !

  3. I love the color. The white tips on the petals and dark leaves make it all the more beautiful.

  4. Those are gorgeous! Love the colour. Sorry to hear you had to share your car journey with a cockroach – hate them!
