A flamenco ruffle of petals

Sitting at the kitchen table over cup of tea my friend suddenly explodes saying, ‘I hate carnations, the one sitting in that old pot is beautiful, you’ve made me fall in love with them.’

A pompom of layered petals

And yes she’s right, though fashions come and go they are still beautiful. Step into a museum and there you’ll see their influence in designs on rugs, ceramics and fabrics. With their ruffle of petals in beautiful stripes and spicey rich perfume, they seduce, they are one of the special things I look forward to every summer.
