Red carnation is the symbol of Mother's day and this flower reminds me of my mother who had passed away too early.
My carnation starts blooming after Mother's day. I wish it would bloom on Mother's day.
This spray carnation has stems of more than five flowers on them.
Last summer when the flowers ended their lives, I trimmed the stalks. In early spring when it had new sprouts, I cut the faded stalks. Now it's in full bloom.
Language of the flower. Pride and beauty
