I was reading about the history of Mother's Day and was surprised to read that wearing carnations is a of Mother's Day tradition. When I was growing up, we always wore roses on our Sunday dress. A red rose if your mother was living, white if she had passed away.
I've noticed the last few years that no one wears roses or any flowers anymore. Is it the same where you live?

One of my favorites was Sophie Kannady. She had quite an exciting life, including being captured with her husband by jay hawkers during the Civil War. Sophie Kannady was quite a woman in her day and I've enjoyed reading about her life.I have quite a few more pictures to share with you at another time.
Have a great week!
