Pink Carnations

Pink Carnations - My Favourite Flower !

"If we could see the miracle of a single flower clearly, our whole life would change." Gautama Buddha

Yesterday, my Dad brought home a bouquet of 20 pink carnations which a client had gifted him for Diwali. I simply love carnations especially if they are pink and was really overjoyed to see the flowers.

I checked up on the flower at wikipedia and I found out that pink carnations are a symbol of a mother's eternal love. According to Christian legend, carnations first appeared on Earth as Jesus carried the Cross. The Virgin Mary shed tears at Jesus' plight, and carnations sprang up from where her tears fell.

"Flowers... are a proud assertion that a ray of beauty outvalues all the utilities of the world. " ~Ralph Waldo Emerson, 1844.

So, do you have a favourite flower ?
