Happy Mother's Day / Evening Primrose

Today, Mother's Day is shared in many countries all over the world, and I would like to share this beautiful cerise Evening Primrose (Oenothera rosea) with women all over the world and say "Happy Mother's Day".

In my humble opinion every woman is born with a natural motherly instinct and that she plays the role of a mother at some stage in her life. Maybe you do not have children of your own, but you might be a foster parent, an aunt or cousin. It might have been that you played mom for your dolls while you were still a young girl, or you were a mom the times that you fed the dog, cats or even the birds. The motherly instinct will always be there, and also the urge to take care, to spoil, to protect, to cuddle and love. All these things are things that moms love to do, and if you fall in this "love to do" category, you are included in this "Happy Mother's Day" message.

Mother's Day comes once a year. Some think that if they buy their mother flowers and a card that they have fulfilled their obligation for the rest of the year. If we only comprehended a 10th of what our mothers did for us as children, and how they would literally die for us if needed, we would realise that one day is not sufficient. Mothers Day should be a time to remind us that we have been neglecting our duties as sons and daughters. This relationship is special so let us honour our mothers.

Wishing you songbirds
to welcome each morning.
Wishing you flowers
to brighten each day.
Wishing you laughter
and sharing and caring.
And all the joy
that each new day can bring.
Happy Mother's Day

I hope you enjoyed looking at this photo as much as I took pleasure in taking it.

Hello Anna,
What a fitting image in which to honor "Mothers" from all around the world. Their brightness and beauty are certainly characteristics which remind us of our moms. You seem to always find beautiful flowers that Rosie would love to have growing in her flower garden, and this one is no exception.
Thank you for reminding us how special our mothers are and for posting this gorgeous tribute.
