Mothers' Day is one of those days that can push green thoughts to the back of your mind. I forgot to check but I doubt our flowers were UK grown and the chocolate we bought wasn't Fairtrade-so a bit of a failure for a green Mothers' Day. But there's always next year to improve!
Sunday lunch was a bit more of a success with pork raised within 15 miles of my parents house and organic veg from Riverford (but a different farm from our deliveries in Preston). So both local and organic food giving us a delicious family meal.
Spring time, with the warming weather, is the time when lots of new mothers are found in nature with lambs, chicks and other new lives all beginning as far from the harsh winter as possible. An excellent time to celebrate brilliant Mums.
