Kerry has since set up her own business, Buttercup Flowers
and Grave Tending, from her home in Blackwood.
For my part now, as an organic, non-chemical, wildlife friendly manager of a small patch of our beloved island, I would much rather sit on the lawn making daisy chains with my grandchildren and ask them whether they like butter (buttercup flowers
under the chin) than rushing around cutting, spiking, scratching and spraying.
If yes, look at 100 creeping buttercup flowers
and count the number with more than five petals.
I also love caltha's yellow buttercup flowers
and astilbes in shades of white and pinks.
In a rare test of paternal behavior in plants, snow buttercup flowers
kept from following the sun produced less-viable pollen than unfettered flowers did.
Their typically open-headed buttercup flowers
are favoured by the first tentative bumblebees that stray from their over-wintering nests on warm winter days for a quick nectar fix.
