Wishing all the UK mothers a very happy and relaxing day with their families and extra thoughts and prayers to those mother’s, like me, whose child/children can’t actually be there with them to help them celebrate this special time.
As last Monday was the UK’s first official Spring day I decided to post some photos of my Sasha Dolls in amongst a few of the UK’s Spring flowers as my tribute to Mothering Sunday. (Have taken Sharon of Spain’s advice and left out the dolls and their clothing’s details and descriptions to save me, and you, time.)
Mothering Sunday is a Christian celebration dating back to the 16th century (there is no fixed date for the UK’s Mothering Sunday as it is linked with Easter Sunday whose date changes every year according to the lunar calendar) though it is always three weeks before Easter Sunday, or the fourth Sunday of Lent.
Back then, Mothering Sunday was a chance for those who worked in servitude to go back home to see their families and attend the church in their home town – or ‘mother church’… from whence the name.originated
As the servant children walked the many miles (kilometres) to their Mother Church they would pick a bunch of wild flowers along the way to give to their mothers.

Hoping that you have enjoyed viewing this Sasha Dolls and the UK’s Spring flowers post. Have a wonderful day in this glorious sunshine and thanks for visiting.
