Good Friday AM Daniel... A very interesting photo(s) and background information. It brought to my mind a comment my wife made concerning her Hydrangea plants. I noted that some of the first blooms were all white and then later the blooms were purple. She told me that the purple color was a result of the plant food she applied. Keep in mind that I only till the soil and take pictures... that's as far as my knowledge goes concerning plant colors Maybe this isn't the same way the Orchid are dyed (?)

Hi Bob check these links about Hydrangea color, hope it helps

I especially like the third photo... beautiful detail and color!

Thanks so much!

Oh, btw, did you have any problems this past week with J Beetles? This past Monday afternoon they were eating on all our plants!! Fortunately I had not yet used all of my insect dust and it drove them off or killed them (?) They are one mean eating machine Take care & HAGD!

Yes, beetles are out in full force   good luck in getting rid of those eating machines

Thanks again, take care
