Pink Carnations

It’s unusual for me to buy myself a bouquet of flowers but yesterday I couldn’t resist and bought this lovely bouquet of pink carnations. I got home placed them in a vase and every time I see them, I smile and bend to smell them. Carnations have such a sweet scent.

The smell of the carnations brought up a childhood memory of my older sisters filling our home with their music. I was seven at the time and I still remember the joy I had listening to this song.

  1. The flowers are so beautiful. And isn’t it fun to do something lovely like that for yourself?! It’s really better than getting them from someone else! Hah, I love that old song.

  2. Hi Carol – that song was new to me and had a fun beat!
    The down view of your carnations shows that you got a nice full bunch of them!
    And hence the smell might have been extra rich!
    Your flowers also reminded me of the leftover carnations I have after a batch of fresh flowers starts to dry up. For some reason the carnations always seem ti last longer as I scale down
    the bouquet – they are such sturdy beauties


      • Well sometimes she doesn’t determine what sings we know – ya know? It depends on what our parents exposed us to – family and friend influences and then school and hobby stuff –
        I have friend younger than me that are so seasoned on big band music and roaring 20s dances
        And then of course I know some music that was before my time- but this never crossed my path

        And glad to see your post in my reader so I could connect this week

    • You are perhaps too young to know the song. It’s from 1957! How nice it’s your favorite flower and if you have a chance read Endless Weekend’s reply about the symbol of the carnation. xxx


  3. Thank you for sharing!!.. I like flowers and I remember dancing to that song, were about 14 then.. happened just before the British Invasion.. 🙂

    Until we meet again..
    May your day be touched
    by a bit of Irish luck,
    Brightened by a song
    in your heart,
    And warmed by the smiles
    of people you love.
    (Irish Saying)
