MOTHER'S DAY

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!

Primroses and violets were the traditional gift, along with a simnel cake, from girls in "service" who were allowed home to visit their mother's on the fourth Sunday in Lent -- known as Mothering Sunday; the day in the UK that we still celebrate as Mother's Day.
These primroses are flowering now in my garden and I'm posting them here with my love.

Have a lovely day!

Thanks, everyone. At the moment the poor primroses are being pounded by sleety snow, but they'll come up smiling. They always do!

I didnt know that it was Mother's Day at UK... but Happy Belated Mother's Day!

And hope your primroses beat the snow soon...(spring is almost here).

The primroses are beautiful.
And, I'm sorry to hear about the sleety snow ~ I went away for the weekend and we had temperatures in the high 80's. It was heavenly.
