Mother’s Day

Every second Sunday of May, we are reminded of our debt: mother’s day.It’s a debt alright; you are around, fed and educated because your mother insisted. This insistence may have been a pain, motherly love comes in various colors and shades including – and more often than you think – the crusty kind hidden under thickening layers of pessimism. But I shall never forget the mother I once had sitting across of me in a European train compartment. She was a visitor from India in the traditional sari and an absolute genius in handling her son.

That's why in France Les Fleurs Dupont and Blooms have caught our eye and in Belgium there is Fleuropean. Germans have remarkable flourists too: go to Bloomage Daydream, and believe or not, in Moscow at Oliviafloristic and Stereoflowers they do appreciate good bouquets to go with their Beluga and Stolichnaya. Closer to home in Seoul we really like the work of Vaness Flower and...
