Besides the blue Hydrangea, the only other flower visible is the white bloom and it may be a variety of Dahlias (Dahlia)

Thanks - it looked like there might be small tiny flowers as well?

I can't see any small, tiny flowers in the photo you posted, but it may be my eyesight. Perhaps you can upload another picture with those and someone may recognize them.

I wondered if the other was freesia?

I can't see any other flowers but check out some of the Freesia images here in our database for comparison: https://garden.org/plants/sear...

I don't see anything that looks like a Freesia, but I think I see a Primula.

@zuzu LOL, I'm going in for my second cataract surgery tomorrow morning so hopefully I will be seeing better in a few weeks once the eye has healed. I still only see the hydrangea and dahlia. Green Grin!

I'm so happy for you, Lin. It can be a life-changing procedure and I think you'll see a huge difference in just days, not weeks.

The flowers I'm looking at are on the right side of the bouquet above the Dahlia. It's a white or cream-colored Primula. Judging by the leaves closest to that sprig of blooms, however, I guess it could also be a white or cream-colored Kalanchoe.

@zuzu, I see a huge difference in my right eye now that the cataract has been removed in that eye; everything is so much brighter and clearer! I noticed the difference right away but had a few days of feeling like something was in my eye, which I was told is a normal sensation after cataract removal ... possibly the incision, I'm not sure. I look forward to being able to drive again once this second eye is done; I probably could drive now but my focus is still a bit out of wack due to the remaining cataract.

I do see a hazy blur of something, above and to the right of the dahlia but I have no idea what it is. Smiling

I could also see other flower, (blue arrow), the primula/freesia lookealike thing is too fuzzy to identify, like trying to identify an UFO or cryptic creatures.
there is another bloom in there may be, (red arrow), it could be a Bupleurum (B. rotundifolium perhaps)

I'm seeing those blurry ones too, but won't even hazard a guess...and I had both eyes done over 20 years ago. Hilarious!
