Why is the carnation so maligned? So out-of-favour?
Associated with sad 'I forgot, I'm sorry' flowers picked up from the garage or dairy, & an unfortunate relationship with gypsophila.
Quite desperate really.
Personally I rather like them.
The colours are usually lovely, the smell is soft, & reminds me of soap, they last really well, they look great, and a bunch of spray carnations goes a long way amongst all my bottles and little indiscriminate vessels. (You know me - if it holds water, I consider it a vase!)
Especially when they are as beautiful as these.
And the vibrant fresh green of viburnum is a much better pairing than the gypsophila don't you agree?
I think I could start a crusade to bring the carnation back in to vogue!
