Wordless Wednesday Poor Mans Rose

Poor Mans Rose

Someone told me years ago that the carnation is “the poor mans rose”. Truth be told I prefer a carnation over a rose. The fragrance is wonderful and they last for two weeks after cutting.

See you at the hop tomorrow!

    Such a gorgeous color but when I first read your title Poor Man’s Roses reminded me and brought back memories of the song by Patsy Cline – ‘Poor Man’s Roses’.
