Monday macro ...

Friday night's flowers were pink button carnations. 


Such a standard in flower arrangements, carnations are often over looked; the supporting character. 
But I see them as superstars - simple, yet essential.  They make the bouquet complete.

  8. "They make the bouquet complete. " and often have a wonderful spicy fragrance as well. These are all beautiful but I like the way you have picked up that little bit of sheen on the petals in #2
