Even in our bed room you could find pot plants ready to sell in our flower shop for Mothe’s day.
Mother’s day is the No.1 busiest day of the year🌱.
When I was 6 years old I ask the florist: what can I buy for my mama and show her my savings ( I had only 50 cent=30 yen. )
Proud with a plant full with flowers I stepped out of the shop 😊.
With Mother’s day we give flowers 💐, flower bouquet, pot plant. All kinds of flowers all kinds of pot plants. This is so different than in 🇯🇵 Japan where the red Dianthus are popular.
With Mother’s day we visit our mother and give her flowers and other presents 🎁.
As for me I live in japan 🇯🇵 I ask my friend to deliver flowers to my mother in the Netherlands.
Flowers are in our daily life, many people buy every Saturday fresh flowers for enjoy the weekend. It’s our culture:)
Let’s enjoy the flower power !!!
Love and appreciation to all Mothers 🙏🌹🙏🌹🇳🇱❤️🇯🇵
