Today's Flowers: The Prom

Last week, I helped to chaperon our high school prom, and one of the teachers who organized it gave me a beautiful bouquet to take home. The irises and mums were just gorgeous. Irises are among my favorite flowers for their color, texture, and amazing form.  The earthy smell of the mums filled the house with a wonderful earthy aroma.  A great treat.
