This basket of colorful flowers was the one I gave to my husband's mother who is 92 years old. It was an arranged flowers of small cockscomb. Well, it is much common to send a bouquet of carnation here in Japan too but the recent TV news has reported that many younger generation are prefer sending some other flowers to carnation. Of course carnation is the most popular choise. Besides it, hydrangea and rose are the one coming up next to carnation, then an arranged baskcet of flowers of all kinds are also getting popular. Though I am old enough to be gifed a bouquet of carnation from my children, maybe I'd better wait for another chance. Well, say, my birthday next month.
