Lisa said Cheryl’s favorite flowers are carnations. Carnations are one of the most popular flowers in the world, fragrant and long-lasting. Known as the “Flowers of God”, derived from “dianthus” (dios= god Zeus and anthos= flower), a scientific name given by the Greek botanist Theopharastus, the ancient Greeks and Romans cultivated these flowers specifically for decorative purposes like for use in garlands, wreaths and other decor projects. In ancient Rome carnations were known as “Jove’s Flower” as a tribute to one of their beloved gods. According to Christian legend, these flowers appeared on earth from Mary’s tear at Jesus’s carrying of the cross. It’s no wonder they are one of our favorite flowers.
