Carnations and Sunshine

Carnations are romantic to me. I know they're a cheap flower - the world's classless fleur - but I just love them. They boast some beautifully bright colors and last a long time.

Life has been kicking me around a little bit this 2015, so on this actually very rainy day on the *brink* (I hope) of spring, I'm trying to let these flowers cheer me up with their brightness, and also this photo of my sunbathing Sunday dog. Neither with a care in the world.
