Today's Flowers #119

Thank you to the Today's Flowers team who host this lovely weekly meme. 
My son-in-law gave me a beautiful bouquet of flowers last weekend.
There were yellow spray chrysanthemums . . .
. . . white chrysanths . . .
. . . chrysanthemums of a delicate pale greenish-yellow . . .
. . . white carnatians . . .
. . . white lisianthus . . . (at least I think it's lisianthus)
 .. . . pink hypericum berries (I think!) . . . 
. . . all set off with stiff green fan foliage - thank you, Paul :-)

  6. Lovely flowers. I like the smell of chrysanthemums-not to obvious and perfumy, just really fresh and green smelling. Hope you have had a good weekend!

  7. What a thoughtful son-in-law you have! The chrysanthemums are gorgeous, as are the carnation and the hypericum berries. I've never seen pale greenish-yellow chrysanthemums before..very unusual!

  10. I think you are right. I was just researching St. John's Wart (Hypericum perforatum)and it does look like the berries.
