My mother sent me a picture with her garden and like always she has an unbelievable scented garden full of flowers. When I was child I thought that her wonderful smile made her flowers to bloom all year and I'm happy that I was raised with affection and patience to love plants in her "House of the Ever-Blooming Flowers". The weather was more friendly in Europe... in Vancouver seems to be a spring without end this year and my scented pelargoniums still waiting warmer days to bloom ... I miss their flowers so much!

Mother's Day is celebrated all over the world to honor our Mothers, although the dates and months of Mother's Day differ from country to country. In Canada and in my native country, the Mother's Day is celebrated in the first Sunday of May.
Happy Mother's Day to our moms!

Mother's Day is the occasion to pay rich tributes to one of those persons who have had a great impact on our lives, a person whose love and care knows no boundaries, a person who does everything to keep us happy and joyous.
The custom, in Canada, similar to all customs in the countries that celebrate this day, is for men and children to give the women in their lives (mothers, wives, sisters and teachers) flowers or gifts.
The idea that the female teacher is the equivalent of a mother figure prevails and sometimes they receive small gifts on this festive day, too.
Special for this event, the children from our neighborhood will offer some little attentions to their mothers and their teachers. Helping them to do these small arrangements with accent plants and moss in oyster shells was a great way to bring them pleasure and to escape from our daily routine.
Happy Mother's Day to all Mothers of the World!
