Happy Mother's Day to my mom who is the best mom in the world. To all you other moms as well as you others who have a mother.... have a great day. Chrysanthemums are a traditional bouquet to present your mother with on this day. Is it because they are blooming at this time or is it because mum is in the name ? Chrysanthemums come from a hot house in Canada and it is strange to see them in people's gardens here in Australia. But they are there,often tied up with twine to keep them upright. It's great to see such an old fashioned plant. These green mums came from Marrickville market this morning and I have had a lovely few hours drawing them in ink.
