I'm a hard of hearing librarian who will never tell you to shhh.
I'm dedicating this post to my Mom who is affectionately known as "Mum" to my son. That's the name I called her Mother so it's become a family tradition. Someday, I hope my son's child(ren) will call me Mum too.
Love you, Mom!
Aw...I like the 'mum' name calling, how classy.Beautiful mums btw, I have a few in my front yard as well.
Beautiful. Flowers are so great for nurturing the soul. Those are really great pictures, thanks for sharing.
Great colours (colors) in those photo's.
I'm interested in how the words are pronounced. I am going to have to listen to my Canadian friends now.In England "Mum" or "Mummy" is the diminuative for Mother. I think I had always assumed that they sounded similar but were just spelled differently. MLM and I smile when we see signs saying "Mums for sale". We have two perfectly good ones so don't need any more, but I'm sure there would be a market.
Nice photos, Sarah.Mog - Mum is like yum with an m. Mom is more 'mahm' sounding... well, to HoH me... so truck load of salt there! lol!
Exactly, Mog. That's why I connected the two in my blog post. Mum as in Mummy and mum as in chrysanthemum are pronounced the same. At least where I live in the Midwest.[Toastie's correct too that Mom is pronounced differently.]I'll have to refer my mom to your Mums for Sale comment. That is cute!
