I asked16 Mothers of varying ages and occupations what flowers they would most like toreceive on Mothers Day. And here are the results:
|MarionF||53||Homemaker||Sunflower(best single flower)||MixedBouquet with plenty of greenery (best bouquet to receive)|
|ChristineH||Ancient(early 40's)||CharteredSurveyor (estates manager)||Freesiasand Roses||*NOTEin the graph below I have given each flower ½ a place each!|
|ChristineJ||60(However age doesn’t matter unless you’re a cheese!!)||Officemanager, but soon to be retired!!!||Sweetpea – but alas these are not in season on Mother’s Day||Anotherfavourite used to be those paper flowers the children made in class andbrought home to mum from school|
|SheilaO-W||69||Retired||Roses||Not keen on lilies|
|Marie C||48||Secretary - Systems Operator||Sunflowers|
|VictoriaF||26||SeniorSecretary||Roses||(abouquet of pinks and creams)|
A break down of the results.
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!
