Wayland Weekly Flower – Celebration Boutonniere

A UPS Forever Stamp with a picture of a “Celebration Boutonniere” taken at the Wayland Post Office on Route 20.  This post office was built in 1970 during the Nixon Administration and serves northern and central Wayland.   There is a second Wayland post office located in Cochituate.

Boutonnieres are traditionally worn by men at weddings or other special occasions.   In the 1900’s, the Boutonniere, or just a simple single buttonhole flower, was an indispensable part of a sophisticated, well-dressed men’s wardrobe.  They are most often pinned to the lapel of a suite or a formal jacket.

The main flower of this Boutonniere is not a rose but rather a Ranunculus (common name Persian ButterCup).  The green buds are Berzelia buds which traditionally grow into small white flowers, and the greenery filler is clubmoss.

Return here every week to warm up to a picture of flowers from somewhere in Wayland.  Perhaps learn a bit about flowers, and different places in Wayland.
