Some mothers do 'ave 'em

Never one to mince her words, I was under strict instructions not to buy my mother flowers for tomorrow. 'Interflora always send crap flowers' was about the gist of it. So, just this once, I listened to what she was saying. Instead, I painted some flowers, wrote her a letter and a card, and chucked it all in the postbox. These flowers, too, maybe crap, but it's the thought that counts.


  1. Her Sister always gets outraged by the price of delivered flowers and by the fact that 50% of the time they arrive looking the worse for wear ( I do too as I then have to ring call centres demanding a refund on her behalf)
    I'm sure she'll be chuffed to bits with your acrylic ones, they are really sweet! I may steal that idea for next year " If God spares me" as Mother would say....

    1. It transpires I've been paying regular chunks of £30 for nothing more than foliage. You'll notice that my painting is a foliage free zone.

  2. Interflora flowers are ephemeral, these will last a lifetime. I'm sure she'll be delighted.
