Now, we have never been big carnation fans, but they have been growing on us lately, and undergoing their own mini renaissance, if you will.
Why? You ask. Let me tell you.

1. Carnations, generally, are fairly long lasting.
2. They come in a variety of colours.
3. They usually have a country garden fragrance which make you want to stick your nose right up to their soft petal-pom-pom and breathe in deeply.
4. They remind us of our Grandmas and Nannas.

(Most of all we like the white ones, all clustered together. But unfortunately I can’t find you a photo of these this morning, so you’ll have to see the orange and red!)
