January’s special flower is
the beautiful carnation.
I love carnations
and think they always look great
even when they’re just shoved into a vase.
I don’t have any preference for colour.
Whatever their colour carnations are delightful.
And carnations always work so well as part of an arrangement.
Carnations have been very popular for decades as seen in these two great film clips from Pathe News.
Growing carnations in 1939
and in 1966.
