"Pink carnations carry the greatest significance, beginning with the belief that they first appeared on earth from the Virgin Mary’s tears – making them the symbol of a mother’s undying love." Hummmm...she's probably a very important characterin TH then...especially with all the lightly placed symbolism in the story...hehe, I cannot wait to read more of TH. It's very fantastic!
I'm not really sure if they symbolism question was rhetorical or not...>///> But just in case it wasn't! I'll give you the meanings behind both red red and pink carnations since I'm also not really sure which ones those in the picture are supposed to be.
1. Deep romantic love, passion, "My heart aches for you," "Alas; for my poor heart!" 2. A woman's love, a mother's love, "I'll never forget you," "Always on my mind," sexual liberation
"What is delicate, durable, and delightful all in one? The carnation , scientifically known as Dianthus caryophyllus, is a historically rich and meaningful flower choice. With its scientific name dianthus roughly translating to "flower of love" or "flower of the gods""
