More flowers in December

Taking a different route to return home from the shops I found several flowers to snap

White roses looking good although they are near an area which is quite often very windy, next to the dry river bed

The Madonna of the Carnation
Bernardino Luini
A stamp issued by the USA in 2007
The painting can be found in The National Gallery of Art, Washington, USA
There are various theories about the significance of the Carnation in several paintings of the Madonna, I quote one of them
Quote
‘Pink carnations have the most symbolic and historical significance. According to Christian legend, carnations first appeared on Earth as Jesus carried the Cross. The Virgin Mary shed tears at Jesus' plight, and carnations sprang up from where her tears fell.’

And a photo of a Carnation
