Mothers, near and far…

To Mothers, near and far,
May you be loved and blessed, remembered and embraced,
And comforted, always.Mother's Day OfferingIn my posy ring, for you, I have placed lavender, heuchera, Mexican orange blossom and feijoa leaves, all freshly picked from my garden on this chilly autumn morning. The fruit baskets contain Taylor’s Gold Pears and Satsuma Mandarins ( not from my garden 🙂 )Posy Ring

      Thank you. I found the colours very soothing too and a reminder that even in autumn, the green goes on, in more parts of the garden than we realise with a casual glance.

      Yes, it is on a different day in the UK. But, mothers are important on any day, so you and your mother can share my wish list for mothers today and always.

      Exactly! We always carry our mothers with us in our hearts, in a look or gesture, in a saying; sometimes in a bad habit ;). I wonder if you would enjoy this link

      to Songs that my Mother taught me by Dvorak.

      Sad but also very sweet.

    A beautiful tribute to mothers everywhere, thank you. I have just spent a week with mine – she will be 70 in September and is enjoying increasing success as an artist – at her latest exhibition she sold 18 paintings! What an inspiration she is to me and my sister.

    I love the way that Mothers’ Day is celebrated on different days in different countries. It means that there is more than one day in the calendar year where me take some special time to think of our mothers. As I am thinking of yours right now. I have never made an oven cloth to match those ones with the different stitches in coloured wool.

      Mothering Sunday is a special time,too, with its own origins and traditions. Oven cloths….well, I have spent the last 6 months looking at a half -finished one! Wondering if I am ever going to finish it. I will remember your mother tomorrow, and, you, too!
