Mother’s Day flowers
The traditional flowers of Mother’s Day are carnations as they represent admiration, love, and affection. Traditionally carnations colours have different meanings, a mother whose own mother is still living gets a red or pink carnation. If her mother has passed on, your mother gets a white carnation. By giving her a carnation, you may bring back pleasant memories of her childhood.

How to celebrate in lockdown? Meet in a park? Facetime?
As we are currently in a national lockdown with regulations planning to change, hopefully we will be able to meet 1 person outside by Mother’s Day. This is brilliant as you can go for a walk, maybe grab some food at a café takeaway. Me and my mum might have a walk round the famous local Lincoln Cathedral and then we might have a nice hot chocolate with all the toppings! Such a lovely way to spend quality time together. Another way of connecting through lockdown is to have a virtual call either through facetime, zoom or teams. On these platform you can have a face-to-face chat, do a quiz or have afternoon tea although it isn't ideal i'm sure it will make your mums day!
Hopefully, it won’t be too long till we can hug our mums again.
