In Love With Carnations...

What is your favourite flower?
I enjoy many, from lilies to roses...
but I have a deep love of carnations.
Perhaps it's because the clove like smell of the old fashioned carnation 
returns me in a moment of my Grandmothers garden.
They are wonderful to pick...
and last such a long time.
'Dianthus Passion' is one of my favourites,
 wearing a bold deep red colour and emitting its spicy clove scent.
Don't you think they look fab in this quirky pig teapot?
