I know my name is a flower, a part of the eye, and a Greek goddess of rainbows. But damn, I love the carnation. I’ve half-participated in organizational/spring cleaning projects and activities across the blogoshpere and almost every one says to buy flowers. It seemed so simple, picking up a bouquet at a flower stand down the street and filling your house with them. Living in the suburbs and not New York City, I never really got the chance to bring plants to my room. Earlier this week though, I went to the local grocery store and bought a bunch of carnations. Just a tiny bunch of these little flowers was enough to fill five little vases/soda cans/bottles with their bright faces. I put them throughout my room and the house and are so pretty to look at. Flowers bring color to my room. They bring life and they bring change. (and a little more air to breathe in times of stress.) I can’t stop staring at these beauties. Go get some flowers this weekend, it’ll be great.
