LIVERPOOL ONE MOTHER’S DAY COMPETITION 2010 WINNER...
WITH thanks to Liverpool ONE and
the Hilton Liverpool, the lucky winner of the Champagne Afternoon
Tea for two at the Hilton's stylish Prima Bar, overlooking the
Liverpool ONE water feature on Thomas Steers Way is Mrs J Usher from
Southport. We hope you have a fantastic time. The modern colour of
the flower given out by children on Mother’s Day, in Britain is
yellow. It is now traditional that daffodils are give out,
representing joy, happiness and friendship. Often this yellow flower
is presented in a hand tied bouquet or as individual flowers. We
also allowed 'pink' after getting some emails with
that colour as the answer. That is due to the fact that pale, candy
pink roses where also once associated with essence English Mothering
Sunday, but today it is the daffodil that is the standard tradition.
