You gotta love carnations.
What other flower looks as fresh on its 12th day
as it did on the day you bought it?
What other flower will put up with an hour of play in the snow,
and then look just as happy after you put it back in its vase inside?
Delicate, yet durable and delightful.
Speaking of delightful, I learned this morning that I had received a silver medal in the photo contest that I blogged about last week. Considering all the fantastic entries that were submitted, it came as a very nice surprise, and it made my day.
And, speaking of making my day, all you people who read my blog, and continue to leave little (and sometimes big) nice, thoughtful, messages - you rock!
And if you don't leave a message, I know you are there - and you rock just as much!
Thank you to my readers!
