Here in England we celebrated Mothers Day back in March, but with my Canadian heritage, I’m very aware that Mother’s Day is coming up soon in North America. So this week I’m featuring Mothers Day Ideas here at The Hearth and Soul Link Party. Welcome!
At Hearth and Soul, blog posts old and new, about anything that feeds the soul, are welcome. This includes – but is not limited to – family, home, recipes, decorating, crafts, DIY, travel, organisation, book reviews, the arts and self improvement.
I know that Mother’s Day can be a sad occasion for many women, and is often bittersweet for many of us, but I wanted to celebrate the joyful side of this occasion by sharing these features today.
How are things in your corner of the world? We have another Bank Holiday Monday here today, and our son has come for a short visit in between work commitments. So I’m publishing a little bit early so I can spend some time with my family.
It was a busy week on the blog last week.
What’s Been Happening On The Blog
Last week on the blog I was thinking a lot about British traditions and how there’s a lot of confusion surrounding the British tradition of afternoon tea.
There’s afternoon tea, Devon cream tea, Cornwall cream tea, high tea, and just plain tea… so what is a British Afternoon Tea really?
And if you are looking for a pretty, seasonal recipe perfect for Mother’s Day or afternoon tea, I’ve got just the thing!
My Rhubarb and Ginger Drizzle Cake is soaked with a sweet tart pink syrup and drizzled with pink glaze. Delicious on its own, I also like to serve it with a spoonful of rhubarb compote and a scoop of strawberry ice cream.
