Is it Nice To Fool Mother Nature?
For those of you who have been around for a while you may remember the commercial where Mother Nature stands on the mountain stretches out her arms and says; “It’s not nice to Fool Mother Nature.” So that brings us to the subject of Black Roses. If Mother Nature never produced a natural black rose; the question becomes if black roses do not exist, how are they advertised and sold in some places? Well like many of us, we like to make some changes to our appearances by putting on make-up or dying our hair a different color; and I have to say that I have been guilty of that many times. Just like our appearances we desire a different look sometimes.We want a little bit of this and a little bit of that and there is nothing wrong with that; change can sometimes be a good thing. Roses are not exempt. In order to get black roses; they have to be changed from their natural color appearance of either dark red, red, or white and so naturally dark red, red, or white roses requires tinting or dying with a black dye. Once they are fully dried they can make an everlasting mysterious and unique impression in a centerpiece or integrated into decorations. The looks, ooo’s and ahh’s for sure will begin. So are we fooling Mother Nature? Of course not. Mother Nature knows that we all want something that we can’t have that she did not produce, and so she is okay with us using our imaginations, gifts and talents that were given to us by her Boss; to make minor changes to nature to enhance a natural look or appearance. So there you have it. Go ahead; indulge and enjoy your black roses that have been tinted. Show them off, flaunt them guilt free.
