The Mother”s Day Rose
This rose-bush was here when we moved in over 30 years ago I have no idea of its type or name but it seems to bloom just in time for Mother’s Day so when folks ask I say The Mother’s Day Rose. Dose anyone remember the Mother’s Day tradition of wearing to church red or pink roses if your mother was alive and white if she was not? What if you didn’t have any roses? Oh now I remember my play mates and I made Kleenex flowers. It was a special treat to get the scented pink ones for the project. Lets see we folded them into fans put a Bobbie-pin in the middle then opened them up.. For some reason we tore the edges and a big cloud of tissue was all over the dinning room table. Happy Mother’s day indeed!
Then agin how sad was it for those who didn’t have a living Mother? I’m glad we no longer have to wear designated colored roses for Mother’s Day!
