“If love is sweet as a flower, then my mother is that sweet flower of love.”
Mother’s Day and flowers, flowers and Mother’s Day — the two are so intertwined that it’s nearly impossible to separate them. For most of my life, the day was a chance to give flats or flowering shrubs. It’s also the day that symbolizes the absolute safe time of year to get things in the ground. So for this day, here are a few photos of the azaleas, lilacs, and columbine blooming now and a few words for Mothers everywhere — including my own.
“How beautifully everything is arranged by Nature;
as soon as a child enters the world, it finds a mother ready to take care of it.”
“I love my mother as the trees love water and sunshine —
she helps me grow, prosper, and reach great heights.”
“Love is a flower, you’ve got to let it grow.”
“Let us be grateful to people who make us happy,
they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.”
“If I had a flower for each time I thought of my mother,
I could walk in my garden forever.”
Happy Mother’s Day!
