Blue Roses Go On Sale In November

It appears scientists in Japan have finally created a blue rose.  Well actually, it's a bit violet, but they're getting closer.  The desire for a blue rose has had scientists working for decades to genetically modify the popular flower.

The new blue rose will be available for purchase in November.  Now Wayne Newton can sing "I want some blue roses for a red lady," instead of the other way around.  This, of course, presumes that he is currently dating Nancy Pelosi.

Yes, the rose is still too purple.  However, I was able to create a true blue rose rather easily...using Photoshop.  See mine on the bottom.

Read about it here.

With a Little Help From Photoshop

The "blue rose" is bluer than before, though. A sort of bluish lavender.
