However, I had to share my pictures of the carnations that I received in a mixed bouquet from our family friend. I just took this picture this morning, three weeks after receiving these flowers! Most mixed bouquets have to be thrown out after only a few days, but these carnations have remarkably sustained their "beauty." I was one of those haters and considered carnations cheesy and cheap. But now, I have a new found respect for them. Cheap, pretty, and incredibly robust. Just like me in this economy. ;)
So, if you have a few dollars in your pocket, buy yourself a bunch of carnations to cheer up your home. Trick is, buy all one color. It makes a huge difference.
