Carnations get a bad wrap. So many people think of them as the common flower, as the boring flower, as the meaningless flower.
But they’re not.
They actually mean ‘Flower of the God’ or ‘Flower of Love’.
They smell like sweet cloves and brighten up any room. And they are so pretty, and ruffly.
And they last for such a long, long time.
My husband brought carnations home last night. Because I was feeling sick, with a cold.
And they have brightened up the room, and smell sweet, and look so pretty and ruffly.
