    Thank you for this lovely post. Both my parents were flower lovers. My father grew roses and had 700 bushes in our yard when he died suddenly in 1982, My mother was a florist owned her own shop. She did fabulous arrangements. She died in 2011 and we miss them both. They left a great legacy to us in learning to appreciate the beautiful things in nature. I’m a May baby myself and I adore flowers. This post made my day!

    While reading your post another word came to mind”Mentoring” really the same thing as mothering. I have been blessed to have been mentored by so many lovely ladies over the years,who graciously helped me along the way,…….mothering in another form,perhaps easier to accept constructive criticism,because the personal element might not have been there the way it is in parent -child relationships. Good post-Happy Mother’s day!
