Bachelors Buttons Prolific This Year

bachelor's buttons growing in the garden last year

Bachelor’s Buttons pictured above are from last spring/summer crop. This year they are popping up all over the garden, as planned when I deadheaded and threw them about all last spring and summer. I will have to cull them, but maybe I can put them in wee pots and sell at a garage sale or something. I love them. They are great in little silver vases in the bathroom, the kitchen, everywhere. They are great by themselves, or with other flowers, icredible with white sweetpeas or ranunculas. I paint them often. Will find a painting to post of them. President Kennedy wore one on his lapel at his wedding.
