I didn’t know that this little flower, whose name is synonymous with saving money, was featured on the back of the old English threepenny bit coin (threepence) until my research discovered this fact. Apparently this indicates that the coin wasn’t worth much money (it’s an odd denomination anyway, for those of us used to the decimal system) which seems to do a disservice to the lovely flower that is so abundant on this plant. Maybe it refers to the small amount of care it needs, thus thrifty on my gardening time? Whatever the case, it’s a lovely plant full of multi-flowered heads that brightens a corner of the flower bed, the earliest flower to do so. I hope your day is full of lovely things that are great value for the effort you put into them! A Flower a Day #270 (NB while I make every effort to identify the flowers I post, I make no guarantee that the name is correct. It’s about the photograph, not the name.:-) )
