The happiest of Spring displays in the window of Narcissus Flowers. This shop, on Edinburgh's Broughton Street, always has creative seasonal displays. A couple of years ago they had a Mother's Day display that cheered my walk to work every morning for a while.
There seems to be an attempt to revive the term 'Mothering Sunday' here. I've read a few mentions in the press of 'Mother's Day' being an American import, and encouraging a return to the traditional British 'Mothering Sunday'. I don't remember the latter in my lifetime, and as my children tell me, I'm OLD. Whatever it should be called, for me it marks the transition into Spring. The best gift I had today was sitting outside soaking up the sun for the first time this year, in the company of my two 'children' of 18 and 21 years.
