The Carnation

With Mother’s Day almost upon us, I thought this legend appropriate. Every flower has its own meaning in history, myths, and legends. The carnation means pride, beauty, and deep love. According to legend, the carnation was first seen at Christ’s birth in Bethlehem. The carnation became popular and associated with Mother’s Day in the USA in 1908, after a women named Anna Jarvis, instigated the first Mother’s Day service and carried carnations,pexels-photo-894751.jpeg which was her own mother’s favorite flower.
