Check out deeze, DISbuds!

Yet another entry to my "cheap fabulous flowers from Trader Joes" category, I purchased this bunch of disbuds well over a week ago and they're still going strong. A friend of mine came over and called them mums, and I corrected him saying "no, they're disbuds..." Well, someone slap me please becuase CLEARLY disbuds ARE a type of chrysanthemum, and I was just being a know-it-all (as can happen). In fact, I looked it up and found a great little definition on this page.

It's funny because I never really like chrysanthemums, I'm not sure why. Maybe their colors are too limited? Whatever the reason, they always seemed a little sad to me. And then I started to notice the disbuds at Trader Joe's recently. I first bought a bunch in this great acid-colored green, but this set of white ones came next.

All alone in one of my vintage pottery vases, they are absolutely spectacular. I love the crisp pointed petals, and the way they burst outward from the center, creating a fantastic graphic silhouette. Chrysanthemum-hater no more! Call me converted to deezebuds...

I love these. I think they'll satisfy both of my polar personalities, the inner carole casserole wasp wonder and inner guido with plunging neckline rhumba dance champion. These flowers give good drama!
