Fun Friday: Birthday Flower

Twitter
Yey :) I am here again, in the blogosphere :) It is a Friday that is why! :) And my Blogging For Fun group, headed by Melissa, revived our Fun Friday. This Friday, our Fun Friday topic is about birth flower. My birth flower is carnation, which symbolizes love, fascination and distinction. 
I would want to post here some carnation flowers, however, I do not know where are my carnation flowers in my archive of pictures :( So, I am posting here buttercup flowers instead, which somehow look like carnation as well :) 
The color red carnation means "my heart aches for you". 
"Pink" carnations means I'll never forget you. A striped carnation means "I wish I could be with you." And yellow carnation means " you have disappointed me". 
Anyway, all pictures above are not carnation but the closest to carnation I can easily find in my photo files. The flowers above belong to the family of ranunculus (buttercups ). Every spring, March- May, this coastal hillside in Carlsbad, San Diego County explodes with colors.

  2. A January girl like me!

    These are beautiful photos to represent the carnation and I like the meanings of the different colours.

  3. Hi Betchai, what a coincidence. I just finished going through my folder of the flowers from the fields. It looks like these were taken last Spring, cause I see the background of the grey skies. And we did the same poses with the flowers. You look so cute! And I edited my clouds with PS. Let's meet up at the Flowers Fields next year.
    And welcome back to the blogging world!

  20. Betchai, you look lovely sitting in all those beautiful flowers. I actually tried to grow carnations, from seeds, but they wouldn't grow. My area may not be compatible for them. I love their subtle smell.
