Pink Carnations

I have been fighting a losing battle with a head cold this week . So I started looking through some  of my photos for inspiration. I found a few of my favorite pink carnation photos to share. Oh how I wish I could grow these in the garden.

I love pink carnations. Well any carnations really. My Father told me once they were the poor man’s rose.

I still have a few in a vase on our table from Valentines day. I change the water regularly and they last for ages and they smell so good!


When asked; ” what is my favorite flower?” I  have trouble choosing only one. I like so many different flowers and all for different reasons. I am always drawn to the fragrant flowers.  Do you have a favorite?

Next Friday I will be announcing The Cutey Giveaway.:-)



Linking to Beverly’s Pink Saturday linky party.

  1. I don’t know that I have a favorite, I like them all!

  2. I must admit…I’m not that much of a fan of carnations. I’m a rose and bird of paradise girl generally speaking. Except for crochet flowers I mean! Then it’s all the flowers of the colorful rainbow!! LOL

  3. Gardenias. I think they have the best fragrance. Reminds me of my 8th grade graduation in 1950. The girls all wore gardenia corsages with different colored ribbons.

  4. Hope you win the battle with the cold.

  5. Carnations are always a favorite of mine. Their scent is heavenly.

    The photos are beautiful. My aunt loved carnations. I love the scent of the Freesia, I like Gerber Daisies a lot but I think I would say the Sunflower is a favorite of mine.

  7. Beth Zimmerman says:

    I don’t have a favorite flower … okay maybe a Shasta Daisy … because I’m allergic to most of the real ones. (Sad face) But as far as appearance goes … I ALWAYS like the pink ones!

  8. Sorry to hear you have a cold. Hope you’re feeling better soon! :)

  9. I hope you are feeling better soon, Katherine. I too, love carnations and truthfully prefer them to roses. I am so sorry to have missed your giveaway. I just cannot seem to keep up with things lately. I think I need a less stressful job. 😉 Have a lovely week, my friend.

  10. Katherine, so sorry to hear that you are not feeling well. Hope it passes soon. I have heard carnations called the poor man’s rose also. I do like them, but somehow they remind me of funerals. Guess it’s because they use them alot. I have a few mini plants in my garden. Not the large variey like your pretty pictures. I love so many flowers, but i think Sweet Peas, Larkspur (Delphinums), and Fox Gloves are among my favorites.

  11. I hope you get feeling better!

    I don’t have a favorite flower. What I love changes all the time. I don’t have many favorites of anything for the same reason. I actually prefer the less fragrant flowers. For some reason I don’t like fragrances very much.

    I had no idea changing the water would help flowers last longer. I’ll try that!


  12. I love fresh flowers in the house. Sorry to hear you’ve be battling a cold. Hope you feel better soon.

  13. I should like carnations as they are my “birth flower” and I do…however, my favorite are hydrangeas..Hydrangeas of all colors and shape…..

    Get better soon…!!!

  14. Happy Pink Saturday Katherine, The Carnations are beautiful, thanks for sharing them. Joyous Wishes, Linda

  15. I can never narrow it down to just one, right now I enjoying the lovely fragrances of a hyacinth that I purchased a few days ago. Thanks for sharing a lovely post :)

  16. So sorry about the cold, I been sick all last week and know its not fun. Get better!
