A Mother’s Day Memory

24 Festive Tasks: Door 11 – Russian Mother’s Day, Task 2:

Do you have a favorite Mothers’ Day memory that you are happy to share?  Photos welcome but optional.

I usually give my mom a bouquet of flowers and take her out for lunch or dinner on Mother’s Day.  One occasion I remember particularly well is when a few years ago we took a trip to a place just south of Bonn, where there is a museum and, right below, the place’s former train station has been transformed into a restaurant.  It was a gloriously sunny day in May, and we very much enjoyed our food and the views of the Rhine Valley.

Cherry Blossoms

One thing that made me grin when surfing social media during my recent hospital stay was this post: — both because of the “World’s Top Destinations” listing and for pitying the hordes of visitors flocking here these days to see the city’s famed cherry blossoms … because very recently it had looked more like they […]
