They seem to be mostly used as fillers in arrangements and bouquets, back-up singers to the fancier flowers that typically get the lime light– like roses and lilies.

Carnations are usually less expensive than roses… but that’s no reason to think of them as a lesser flower or that they have less meaning when given to someone you care about.

I have them all around my house right now–they were leftovers from the baby shower we hosted (along with the teapot arrangement that is on my island).

I think they are lovely and sweet.

Happy Valentine’s Day, my friends. Know that you are cherished.

And a very happy birthday to my dear friend, Holli.
