Cherish your Mother or her memory.

Different countries celebrate Mother's Day on various days of the year because the day has a number of different origins.
In the United Kingdom and Ireland, Mothering Sunday falls on the fourth Sunday of Lent, exactly three weeks before Easter Sunday (March 22 in 2009). It is believed to have originated from the 16th century Christian practice of visiting one's mother's church annually, which meant that most mothers would be reunited with their children on this day. Most historians believe that young apprentices and young women in servitude were released by their masters that weekend in order to visit their families.[17] As a result of secularisation, it is now principally used to show appreciation to one's mother, although it is still recognised in the historical sense by some churches, with attention paid to Mary the mother of Jesus Christ as well as the traditional concept 'Mother Church'.

Hi David,

In the Netherland we celebrate mothersday in May, so I have to wait a while, but then we have an opportunity to be outside with the whole family.
A perfect picture of this white dahlia, very difficult to get that white just right, but you have done it just right.

Hi David,
Nice shot, I couldn't tell you what flower it is but you have captured it well, good colours and details although there seems to be a little noise on the flowers in the backgroud, and an interesting note.
Well done
Regards Andy
