If you wonder why the fourth Sunday in Lent is celebrated as Mothering Sunday you'll need to look back in time to when our larger houses and farms had servants. Years ago even in our farmhouse there were 12 people "living in". They worked in the house and on the farm, and we can still see the remains of their rooms in our attic.
Every year on the fourth Sunday of Lent the folks in service (and often they were children) were allowed to go home for the day and celebrate a break in lent to feast and celebrate with a special service at their Mother Church. The gift of flowers came about as often on the walk home the servants would a pick a posy for their Mothers from the hedgerows.
It seems quite fitting to me to keep this tradition of saying thank you and what better way than withBritish Flowers- just like they did all those years ago. Of course no need to pick your own and walk home... We'll do that bit for you :)

Just wanted to say thank you so much for the lovely bouquet of flowers that you sent to my daughter today. She's been shielding since February so these made her day. She was delighted that there were no lilies in the flowers as she suffers with hayfever. Thank you - Helen P
Just to say a lovely thank you for the beautiful arrangement of flowers for the funeral sheaf I ordered for my fathers funeral. He was 91 and always interested in the environment and wildflowers. The arrangement was just perfect. Many thanks once again - Magda B
My family arranged for you to deliver flowers for my birthday last Monday and I have to say that they are the best flowers I have ever received! After a week they are still looking amazing and are likely to do so for several days yet. Thank you very much! - Mary B
