i am having quite the affaire de coeur with carnations! i can not get enough of these beautiful flowers. we just moved into our new apartment, and i bought another bunch to put atop my dresser. i have heard it before that these are the "poor man's flower." and my friends have reiterated this as i have gone on and on about how much i adore them. but, i am simply baffled by this! who is to say that one flower, or anything grown in nature, is superior over the other? how could one put a price or weight on such a thing? shame on whoever has said this. i find such great beauty in their petite and scalloped petals, in their sweet fragrance. i gaze at them every time i pass by and am just delighted by their loveliness and grace.
