Not to be pedantic, but bachelor isn't the same as unmarried male. (There is a divorced male, a widower, and a male child who is too young to marry)

... to say nothing of a 'bachelor button' - neither 'unmarried', 'male', nor 'a small disc sewn onto a garment to fasten it'.

P.S:: Just in case you were planning to join in: we have cancelled the volunteer garden work (Ehrenamtliche Gartenarbeit) session scheduled for tomorrow, March 16th at 2:30 p.m. in Kiel's Old Botanical Garden owing to the fact that the garden still lies under a layer of snow (uncharacteristic for Kiel in mid-March). The schedule for the remaining sessions from April to October, 2013 is posted in the garden display case, on the door of the garden toolshed, and in the pavillion.

(which is a rather infelicitous summary in English of the more accurate, and more richly illustrated German entry:)
