Ja bardzo zawsze lubiłam goździki. One oprócz symboliki o której piszesz, są ładne, pachnące i długo stoją w wazonie. Bardzo ładne zdjęcia zrobiłaś im. Pozdrawiam. *** I really always liked cloves. One addition to the symbolism of which you write, are nice, fragrant and long-standing in a vase. Very nice pictures you've done them. Yours.
