HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY

Today in the US it is Mother's Day.  Growing up in the UK this special day was a different month, in March.  My Dad always made sure my sister and I had a bouquet of daffodils for Mum.  She always received them with a big hug and a wonderful smile for both of us.  

Days when Mother's Day is/was celebrated across the globe in 2020.
Israel - February 25th
Russia - March 8th
Middle East - March 21st
UK and Ireland - March 22nd
Hungary and Portugal - May 3rd
Austria, Australia, Canada, Finland, Germany, 
Greece, Cyprus, South Africa, Switzerland and
the Ukraine - the same day as we do, 
May 10th
Poland - May 26th
France - June 7th
Spain - December 8th
(With thanks to my blogging friends for more dates.)

If there are any that I have missed, please let me know.

So my dear friends, for those of you who are celebrating, Happy Mother's Day!  
These are the flowers I was given today.  I will be remembering my Mum, they are for her too, and a reminder of our children for they are the best gift of all.  

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest
of your weekend.
