I know it is an odd picture with the title of "Mother's Day" however I can explain...It seems that Mother's day, or more accurately, the day before Mother's Day, seems to be spent visiting the gravesite of family members and cleaning it up a bit. The timing is right as winter is behind us, so a great time to clean up the site a bit, plant some flowers and reclaim what nature damaged.
I went to a nearby graveyard to take some pictures. While there I came across a very old couple, early eighties I would imagine, with this wonderful car, The trunk was filled with bags of mulch they were laying on their parents graves. I was drawn to the amazing car they drove in on and quickly helped them move the big bags of mulch. Very nice people as English go.
I then took a seat and watched all these people tending to family gravesite. They would chat with each other a bit, then get back to work. Once done they would sit and contemplate a little while before climbing in their car to go home.
I found the entire event lovely. It was their time to remember their loved ones and take care of their final resting places.
