Sunday next is Mothering Sunday - 31st March. Mothering Sunday is the fourth Sunday of Lent. Although it's often called Mothers' Day it has no connection with the American festival of that name. Traditionally, it was a day when children, mainly daughters, who had gone to work as domestic servants were given a day off to visit their mother and family. Today flowers are given to mothers on this special day - and here are just a few photographed at St. Peter's Church Aldborough Hatch.
