Nosegay

Heres a little history for you on the ol' nosegay.
nosegayposey (or posieposy), flower bouquet or tussie-mussie is a small bunch of flowers, typically given as a gift. They have existed in some form since at least medieval times, when they were carried or worn around the head or bodice to mask the unpleasant smells of the time[citation needed] - literally, to keep the nose gay (to keep the nose happy). . http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nosegay

So here you have it, my glorious nosegay arrangement, filled with david austin roses, peonies, hydrangea, lotus flowers and mulberries. Totes tussie mussie. Apparently.
