Pink Carnations






As I mentioned before, there are a few things we don't let run out here at our home, and one of them are fresh flowers. Some friends ask me if I spend a lot on flowers. Well, I really don't know because they bring me such JOY, specially because we have a very short spring/summer up here and I don't mind to spend a few extras on them. These carnations I bought this morning while grocery shopping. I couldn't resist to get them and lucky or not, they were 50% off the regular price. I've been enjoying so much cooking, trying new recipes and nothing better than have these beautiful flowers close to me while I cook. They are beautiful just for the simplicity, the delicate color, just to be...

I love them! We have this great flower farm here in OR where you pay .10 per flower. I give each of our 4 sons $1.00, pair of scissors, and a bucket and let them pick out whatever flowers they want for our home! Great time to spend with one another.
