TANSY FAIRY ~ In busy kitchens, in olden days, Tansy was used in a score of ways; Chopped & pounded, when cooks would make Tansy puddings & tansy cake, Tansy posset, or tansy tea; Physic or flavouring tansy'd be.

Were ever such button-like flowers seen-- Yellow, for elfin coats of green? Three in a row --I stitch them so!
