The Amazing Green Trick Carnation

I have to thank Mimi at Fly Me To The Moon for introducing me to the Green Trick Carnation. I first saw this photo on her blog

Here’s a little disclaimer…I hope I correctly identified the carnations in these photos…if not, leave me a comment! The blooms in the Mint design photo look slightly different to me…

So, what do you think? Do you like them?

Green Trick carnations last 2-4 weeks and have golf ball sized blooms. Check the Ballarat Carnations website for more information…

Thanks for stopping by today. I know the week is getting hectic for many as we near Christmas Day!

Wow! I'm a little bit in love with these. They are just so...fluffy! Could you imagine a wall completely covered in them!? It would be awesomeness on a stick!
