“Mothers Day Wake-Robin 2020”
“Be a Mother who is committed to loving her children into standing on higher ground than the environment surrounding them. Mothers are endowed with a love that is unlike any other love on the face of the earth.”
Mothers do not have it easy. They endure things that would make many give up, they weather the storm and are there for us when we need them, even if we don’t always know it. Despite all that is thrown at them, they still remain the most beautiful thing we can see.
That’s one of the reasons I chose this image, made only a few hours ago in a local forest. Despite unfavourable weather (it was a mere 4 degrees Celcius and sleeting when I made this image) these red trilliums or Wake-Robins were in full bloom this morning, while their white counterparts remained bundled up, waiting for warmer days. In fact, all the other wildflowers which had been blooming earlier in the week had pulled shut, but not these.
It seemed an appropriate image for this special day.
