Happy Mother’s Day!

It is Mother’s Day over in the USA today, and although my mum and sister (both mums) are over in the UK where they have Mother’s Day a bit earlier (no, not hours earlier, weeks earlier) I still try to remember to make and send them cards to arrive in time for the USA one. For the card I made for my mum this year I used these spectacular roses I spotted on campus (during the recent festival) in the garden next to the USC Alumni house (it used to be the original USC building some 131 years ago):

Stunning, aren’t they?

I wish all Mothers, far and near, Happy Mother’s Day!

    Simply beautiful and when she sees the card she will be entranced – what stunners! You know how bowled over she is by roses – her favourite flower. Mine was equally beautiful. Thank you – it was a lovely day. cmj+

    These roses are stunning, and it is lovely that over the years you have done other Mothers’ Day posts with equally beautiful flowers. I must confess that I actually felt a little bereft on Mothering Sunday this year (the UK version) that there were no Aymptotia flowers!You have more than made up for it today. Thank you!

    Oh! Yes…. sorry about that Mary. It all rather crept up on me a few weeks ago. Glad to have made up for it!

    BTW – she loved them! You will hear the pleasure in her voice in the next call. My peach and her deep coloured roses are priceless. Thank you again. cmj+
