This moral outrage was spotted in San Diego. Killing time while Andrew finished up in a bookstore I noticed a florist sign down the street a bit, I figured being in extreme Southern California there might be some exciting offerings and walked down to check it out. This is what I found...
Banksia blooms dyed red, blue, green, pink and purple! Or maybe not dyed but dip-painted?
Either way why in the name of all that is holy and sacred would you do that!!! WHY!!!??? (kind of reminds me of the painted succulents that have been spotted at the big-box stores)
As if this isn't already beautiful enough, you have to go and colorize it? So so so wrong.
Oh and if you needed a little filler foliage to go with those colored up banksia flowers how about some silver and gold painted Adenanthos?
How will you decide which to get?
Oh I know, how about going with the actual foliage, which is quite beautiful as-is! What were they thinking?
