Today I bought some red carnations for 3 euros at the supermarket. I was feeling good about the purchase until 3 people mentioned on separate occasions that carnations were their mother's favourites. And they were not the type to have young, hip flower-loving mothers. I don't really know my european flowers, but I get a sinking feeling that carnations are a bit, well, daggy.
But these are red and lovely.
Today I also framed this. It's one of my favourites in the whole wide world.
