Buttercups bring a smile to anyone's face. They're fun, they're cheerful, they're a ray of sunshine to bask in. How many children across how many decades have held buttercups to their chins to 'see if they like butter'? Buttercups have made their way into pop music like the Foundations' 'Buttercup Baby', and into fairy tales via William Goldman's classic The Princess Bride. That just goes to show how much crative energy is stored up in these little pockets of sunshine.

Like all yellow flowers, buttercups are connected intimately with sunshine. But because of their tendency to grow in great profusion across meadows and pasture, the yellowness of buttercups has also given them another folkloric association: butter. Indeed, it was once believed that cows who grazed among buttercups would give better butter (not bitter butter). The truth is quite the reverse: buttercups have a nasty taste, and cows will carefully avoid eating them - which explains why you see buttercups growing healthily even in fields where other wildflowers have been grazed down to stubble.

Bouquets with buttercups in from Clare Florist are guaranteed to have a natural, pastoral charm. Your mind will be drawn to meadows, to fresh air, and tumbling streams. And what's more, your bouquet will be in immaculate condition: our expert florists leave no stone unturned in their efforts to make sure that every bouquet which we send out the door looks sublime, and reaches you in wonderful condition. A Clare Florist bouquet is a guarantee of quality. So chin up!
