The earliest Mother's Day celebrations trace back to the spring celebrations of ancient Greece in honour of Rhea, the Mother of the Gods.
During the 1600s, England celebrated a day called, Mothering Sunday, c elebrated on the 4th Sunday of Lent (the 40 days leading up to Easter),

which honoured the mothers of England.
MANY OF ENGLAND'S POOR WORKED AS SERVANTS FOR THE WEALTHY. As most jobs were situated far from their homes, the poor servants had to live with their employers. On Mothering Sunday, they were given the day off and were encouraged to return home and spend the day with their mothers. A special cake, called the "Mothering Cake", was often brought along to provide a festive touch.

Sunday Morning
WILD FLOWERS picked by an Amish farm girl.
The farmer's daughter gathered these flowers from the field, she sold them to me for $3.00 which is part of her pocket money.
Earlier this year she picked wild garlic. Makes my heart glad to receive such gifts of nature and to support local enterprise.
