I wish this was a scratch-n-sniff post, because the scent of these purple bearded irises and sweet pea is undoubtedly swoon inducing. Bearded irises are like the green flashes of the flower world: only showing off their delicate ruffled blooms for only a month each year. Here, they are paired with royal blue vanda orchids, purple tulips, and aubergine sweet pea to make a textural and richly colored bouquet. Thank you Melissa Biador for the gorgeous photo! ~Aileen
