Yup, for Valentine's Day my husband gets me carnations...why? Because I like them so much better than something traditionally seen as "romantic" like roses.
Why do I like them? Well, first of all--they smell like carrots! :) Mmmmmm! :) And secondly they last for a LONG time! :) The flowers in the picture above were from Valentine's Day, nearly a month ago...and are still looking good and pretty!
