Flowers express feelings, but they also mark occasions. Read More about When Flowers Matter The Most Of All
January has two birth flowers - the snowdrop and the carnation. It's the latter bloom that we here at Bagoy's Florist & Home want to celebrate in this week's blog.

A carnation's intricate layers never seem fussy, instead they add a nice textual element to any bouquet.
