Take a walk in Blue Bell Woods listen to the sounds around you, of bird song and bees. Smell the flowers and the scent of Spring in the air. Every year is a new beginning and every day a blessing

Mothers Day UK.................

My friend Roger was so kind and sweet. He went and put flowers on my parents grave for Mothers Day.

Mothers Day in the USA is sometime in May. In the UK it is always the fourth Sunday of Lent. It's not just a Hallmark holiday. Mothering Sunday has been celebrated from ancient times and on the 4th Sunday of Lent since the 16th century. So we can not blame Hallmark for making up this one.
As a young person I remember going to Luton Market to buy mum some flowers. I would choose Dutch Iris and Mimosa. The lovely Blue and yellow flowers together were beautiful.
