Sunday 6th March is Mothering Sunday in the UK.
Back in the day, little kids could buy a primrose in a pot for 50 pence from their school as a Mother’s Day present. Mums had to feign surprise and delight, even though they had coughed up the 50 pence themselves, and had to carry the plant home after school on a Friday afternoon. Happy Mother’s Day to all of the kind and caring mums out there.
There is more information about primroses in my post Yellow Bloomers – Part Two.
