Buttercups (Ranunculus acris) ~ Cornflowers (Centaurea cyanus) ~ Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) ~ Poppies (Papaver rhoeas ) ~ are all small flowers, arranged here in posies or bunches.

The cornflower was traditionally used ~as bachelor's button ~ to signify that a man was in love. For the love to be reciprocated the buttonhole was to not to fade.

In France the 11 November Armistice Rememberance flower is the cornflower ~ in the UK it is the poppy, probably for similar reasons ~ its ability to proliferate amongst crops and in overturned soil (as in wartime fields).

The variety depicted by Tassotti is probably a double variety, rather than the common 'field' corflower quoted above. I is favoured by bees, and the seeds are especially attractive to finches.

The 85 gsm paper shown above is printed on B1 sheets by Tassotti. The pattern is 'two~way~up' ~ V2 ~ and printed with the grain. More details on Tassotti papers are available [126493].
