This takes the cake
I think she might pull out her old adage if she could see the Dotted Mint flowers blooming in my prairie.
I referred to the Dotted Mint in a previous post as a Carmen Miranda-type bloom. That was when I'd only seen blooms that had three levels.
Now that I'm seeing blooms like these that have four or five levels, I think they look more like wedding cakes. Wedding cakes that incorporate delicate pink frosting, speckled spider-like legs, and pineapple tops. When I study the Dotted Mint, I think Mom might have to change her saying.
It may be more accurate to say, "This one is the cake!"
