Do You Like Butter?

As a child I did this many times and had my friends do it to me.

Himself just mowed the lawn. Perfect swathes. But he annihilated all my buttercups :o(

Do you like butter? Hold a buttercup under your chin and folklore says if there is a yellow reflection on your skin it means you do. But the real reason the flowers seem to shine with an intense glittering yellow is nothing to do with butter but about advertising the plants to insect pollinators from a great distance.

My late and Divine mentor, Leslie Kenton, taught me well. She knew about fake shit and always told me stay away from what she called “golden oils.”

Butter is Butter.

My Aunt, Mum’s sister, always said that she’d NEVER buy anything other than real butter. The fake stuff reminded her too much of the days when she had no money and margarine was all she could afford. TRUE.
