WW: Green Carnation at St. Patrick's Day Parade

Green Carnation Flower Photo

"St. Patrick's Day is an enchanted time - a day to begin transforming winter's dreams into summer's magic."
- Adrienne Cook

During the 7th Annual Milton St. Patrick's Day parade last weekend, a local garden club member handed my friend's toddler a beautiful white and green carnation, which he promptly tore the stem off. At least I was able to take a pretty picture of the petals after he lost interest!

  1. It looks something like an Asian cabbage with the ruffly green petals. Guess the green didn't work to keep the carnation safe since the toddler "pinched" it from it's stem.

  7. Love the green. That does seem to be the toddler's credo...if you love it, see how indestructible it is. My niece, for example, has taken to ripping the pages out of her books. Though...I think that may have more to do with the fact that someone showed her a coloring book with removable pages...and now she seems to thing that is standard in every book.
