Gomphrena globosa - Bachelor's buttons

Though I am unable to recall where I had taken this photo, I have good memories of this humble flower and of a neighbour who has moved away and whom I have lost contact with. She was a house-wife with two young children and we used to spend time chatting with each other over the fence. I am not sure if 'Bachelor's buttons' is the name of these flowers and I remember conjuring up a picture of a dapper young man with this flower on his lapel.
