My pink carnations are singing on their last waltz now. They have lasted for three weeks though! I've come to discover that they are sweet and beautiful flowers to have around and so long lasting. When I was younger I didn't really like them. Some say they are "filler flowers" and I thought that too for a while, but then a few years ago it was as if I suddenly had a newfound love for them.
My grandmother liked carnations too, she would often have little bouquets of them in her home. And my mother carried red ones in her wedding bouquet when she married my dad.
