Take a moment (stopping to smell the flowers, as it were) to appreciate the beautiful body art that these perennials make. 

Freesias have been cultivated in a number of different styles and look lovely in them all. Traditional tattoos of them bring out the boldness of their natural form, while realism and watercolor compliment the vivid colors that sprout from their bough-like stems every spring.
