Red and white carnation - pictures of flowers

Welcome to a new round of Macro Flowers Saturday!

Carnation flowers are one of the most valued cut flowers in winter time.
The Carnation, the descendant of Dyanthus Caryophyllus, with its large, fringed flowers of various colors is a classic beauty, timeless in its appeal.

Winter is back by us. It is snowing slowly and constantly, as you can see in the background of some of the pictures. It's the best time to admire some passionate, red carnation flowers.

Love your red carnation, and I like carnations more than other flowers since they last much longer..

Your carnations are just simply beautiful. They don't carry these flowers around here at this time.

Thank you all for the lovely comments.
In the last two days I have a discontinuous internet connection, probably because of the heavy snow fall, so I'm late with the comments.
I catch up with you as soon as I can.

I love the contrast of warm red against the white cold background!

I love the snow bouquet as well simply because we do not have winter.

As lovely as the snow looks, I pray and hope you are OK and safe and warm from all that cold.

The pictures with the wintry background are really effective.

I so love your carnation photos. If only the scent could come through for us as well as their sturdy but delicate beauty. And I love the juxtaposition of the snowy bush and the last white carnation. Cool!

SquirrelQueen said...

Beautiful, the bush looks like it is filled with snow flowers.
