Bright and Happy

My son turned 5 recently, and my husband made this lovely train cake for him.  I thought it would be fun to use the food colouring in glass tumblers and buy simple white flowers to go in them.   I guess this can double as a bit of a science experiment too, if you have flowers like daisies.  These flowers — I think they are sweet peas; does anyone know? — don’t draw up the colour so it’s just for decoration.  They are bright and happy the kids loved it…so did I.  Just another idea up the sleeve for bringing a little colour and happiness into the home.

    I was about to say they are Jonquils – one of my favourite flowers as they have a glorious scent :) I was at Toombul shopping centre a couple of months ago and walked towards the lifts to go to Lincraft, when I could smell them at a florist shop and had to buy some to take home – they smelled (smelt?) devine on the train home :)
