Mother’s Day …how did it evolve?

Mother’s Day is a wonderful day where we take the time to honour our Mother’s / Grandmother’s and give thanks for all the little things they do for us. In Australia this day is celebrated on the second Sunday in May but has a few different dates around the world. It’s origins date back to America in the 20th century where it is believed a lady who lost her mother chose to have a memorial for her and then campaigned to continue this day of celebration and significance for Mothers. It spread quickly and soon was celebrated all over the world. Other countries had traditions of returning to ones “Mother” church to worship. As Mother’s Day is held in Autumn the Chrysanthemum is a beautiful and colourful flower that is readily available. It is not known for sure but because it has the endearment of “mum” in it’s name the Chrysanthemum has become one of the countries favourite flower to give to ones Mum.¬† Blackwood Florist has an array of gorgeous locally grown Chrysanthemum’s and stunning flower arrangements for you to choose the perfect gift for your special Mum. Whether your Mum loves the Chrysanthemum or has her own favourite bloom be sure that Blackwood Florist has many beautiful and colourful flowers and gift ideas to spoil her this Mother’s Day Sunday 13th May.
