Mensa = Smart?

One of my coworkers has a page a day mensa calendar. As he solves the puzzles he gives them to me. Most are straight forward, but he showed me a very interesting one yesterday.

Kim has three vases in her living room, each containing the same number of flowers. Kim adds three fresh flowers to one vase, which now has two more than the new average. How many flowers were in the vases originally?

See my comments (to my own post) for the answer if you need it.
