Do you have a Mother’s Day tradition?

April 13, 2015

Do you have a Mother’s Day tradition? Each year, my sister and I take my Mom to the local greenhouse and buy flowers to fill her garden beds and hanging pots for the spring and summer. We spend the day together working in the gardens, cleaning out dead plants and branches left over from the winter, and refilling beds and pots with new flowers. It’s been a tradition for many years and one that I look forward to each spring.

Unfortunately, living in NYC–a few hours drive from my Mom’s house, makes it challenging to get home sometimes. Last year, I couldn’t make it home for Mother’s Day so I wrote this post with links from around the web that I knew she would enjoy. I loved writing the post, but I was nostalgic for our garden day.

I’ve been thinking about adopting another Mother’s Day tradition, one for when I know I can’t make it home to spend the day with her playing in the dirt. Maybe a gift card to the greenhouse or a fresh bouquet–she loves arranging flowers–or tickets to a play. Do you have a Mother’s Day tradition? How do you celebrate? A sweet card? Dinner? A long phone chat? I’d love to hear!
