Dry Carnations

I wonder why was Carnation selected to be The Mother’s Day Flower?

From the wreath I made almost two months ago, it tells me, Carnation  fully deserved to be The Flower of Mother’s Day .

Just by looking at the color of the flowers. Even the flowers were dried, the color was still as garish and beautiful as can be!

To me, the color signifies mother’s love.

Mother’s love never fade!

C-21 Lily, Rose and Carnation

lily,rose, carnation

“This bonsai of flowers is a combination of love.”  My mother told me.

Roses and carnation symbolizing the worldly love .

Lily, the Easter flower, symbolizing the love of God. Remind us that God send His Only Son, Jesus Christ who came to earth, suffered and died on the cross of us. And on the third day He rose again from the dead, in order to complete God’s love.

My mother was converted into Catholic around her early 50 s. Though she didn’t go to church regularly, but her devotion to God was deeply planted in her heart.

This whole combination of flowers shows her ideal of The Unity of God and His People on earth
