Today's Flowers, Mellow Yellow Monday, Ruby Tuesday / Preparing Carnations for the Rose Parade Floats


These beautiful red carnations were being "fluffed out" in preparation to being put on a float for the Rose Parade in Pasadena, California on New Years day.  These photos were taken 2 days before the parade.
