Bonne Fête des Mères

Today is Fête des Mères (Mothers Day) in France. The picture above is of one of my favorite flowers. It’s the coquelicot (corn poppy). I know it’s associated with the World Wars (I and II), but I think it’s just beautiful. I don’t think of death or blood when I look at these flowers.

Instead, I see a field swimming in bright, red happiness. I see tender caresses and fragile dreams. I see love.

Happy Mothers day to all the other mothers out there. I wish you all the happiness, tender caresses, dreams and love in the world.

    I am sure you are missing your daughter today, but enjoy your day. You will be reunited soon and then you can celebrate a second Mother’s Day – who says you only get one a year?

    Happy Mother’s Day Pumpkin.

    I love those flowers, my husband took some photos of our girls in the middle of a field of red coquelicots. It’s framed and over our fireplace.

    It was a nice relaxing day spent walking and taking the kids to the park. :)
