So, despite carnations being the traditional Mothers Day Flower ? they did not featureonce! And the best seller (see previous blog entry) from last year ? the rose ? came a very close second to the Lilly!

Also... keep your eyes open because I will be asking men what they think their Mothers would most like to receive on Mother's Day ? and we shall see how the results compare!
