My twin daughters love flowers and enjoy playing ‘do you like butter?’ with buttercups. This is a game where you hold a buttercup under a friend’s chin, if the sun reflects yellow from the buttercup on to your friend’s chin they like butter.

  • Thanks Debra, I remember doing it all the time too, it’s fun seeing my girls do it now.

    A beautiful capture… can’t say I know the game though…. : ))

  • Jenny, I think it must be a British thing, I shall have to put an explanation on the picture.

    No’s not just an English thing. We did it as children with dandelions here in the US

  • Ah, thanks Kathy, Heather thought it was just an English thing, perhaps it’s just English to do it with buttercups!
