For some reason Carnations have had a bad rap. They get lumped in with baby's breath and geraniums for being ugly and old fashioned. While I still don't like baby's breath, the color of these carnations cannot be beat; bright orang-y red and hot pink! And they are still going strong into their second week in the bowl even after all the water evaporated once.
I think they look amazing and lush especially when you treat them like a topiary and pack them very densely in a footed bowl or a wide mouthed vase.
Lola and a bowl of bright flowers. These are the things getting me through this deep freeze!
