The Cool House: Billy Buttons

Billy Buttons

A week or so ago I posted this photo and mentioned I didn't know the name of the flower. While wasting time reading other people's blogs working today I came across this post from the Happy Living Blog. Turns out they are called Billy Buttons or Craspedia and there are lots of other varieties. I don't know why I'd never seen them before, but they are such a vibrant yellow and so small and cute they make me smile. They are also a nice change from the ubiquitous tulips and daffodils at this time of year and they're holding up really well in this bunch of flowers I shoved in a vase over a week ago.
