I heart :: Cornflowers

Also known as the Bachelor's Button, it was said that the cornflower was worn in buttonholes of young men in love when they went courting the ladies.  Cornflowers last so well after cutting, that the couple could dance the night away and the cornflower would sparkle.

How lovely would it be to dress up your ears with these:



And to sleep with these:
