The sun is shining.Birds are singing.Our garden is already full of flowers. It is a good day.Especially as I am about to be spoilt. Why?
Because it is Mothers Day in Switzerland,and I am one.
I have grown out of the role of course,my daughters have long turned into my friends,which is I suppose as big a compliment as any mother could wish. But I am getting more today. An organised Brunch in the garden and a big bouquet of wild flowers like the ones they used to pick when they were small.
If you are celebrating in your country today.
Happy Mothers Day.
Ethic has become a fashionable word these days. According to the Oxford Dictionary, ethics is “the study of standards of conduct and moral judgement”.
There are Ethic Commissions everywhere earning good money to save us in our completely unethical world.
In Switzerland they have probably given up trying to save people and animals because the Ethical Commission here has now moved on to plants.
They say plants have a dignity that needs to be protected,and are discussing what ethical position we must take in this.
So, up until a decision is made please don’t pick the Daisies.
