One of the traditions at the church I attended as a teenager was that everyone would bring in the favorite flower of his or her mother on Mother's Day. As you can imagine, there were a lot of flowers in the church on those Sundays.

The smells and the colors were almost overpowering, but in a good way. Those Sundays were some of my favorite days to go to church, and they are now the centerpiece of some of my favorite memories.

For me, red roses are Valentine's Day flowers, but I am seeing them more and more on Mother's Day. I prefer the mixed bouquets. They are pretty and so colorful when they are put together nicely.

As far back as I can remember, my mother has loved flowers, and she always had a yard and house filled with them when I was growing up. On any special occasion, I knew I could buy Mom a flower and she would be pleased with the gift.

On Mother's Day I would always buy her a plant. She didn't care for the cut flowers as much because she wanted something she cold keep as a memory of the occasion.
