Mother's Day 2013

Today is Mother's Day in the United Kingdom. Two days ago, Dad surprised Mum by buying her flowers, chocolate and a card early:

This was the first time since we lived in California that my Dad bought Mum flowers. For years, our cats would eat parts of or play with any plants we had; while she misses the cats dearly, Mum appreciated the flowers.

I should note that Dad did this on International Women's Day; while he didn't buy them specifically for that day, I found myself appreciating his timing.
