My mother is very good at raising plants and flowers.
We have plants and flowers indoors and outdoors all the year round. Some of our plants were very small in the beginning,
but now they are large and very beautiful.
On top of our roof there is a big glass-enclosed greenhouse.
All our friends love to come to our house to see the beautiful world my mother has made for us. Every morning and evening we see my mother taking care of her plants like little children.
As her real children grow older and more independent,
my mother devotes more time to her garden.
This is a very good way to spend one’s free time.
In the U.S., mother’s day is a holiday celebrated on the second sunday in May. It is a day when children honor their mothers with cards, gifts, and flowers. It was first observed in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1907. Long before that, there were days honoring mothers even in ancient Greece. In those days, however, it was Rhea, the mother of the gods who was given honor.
Later, in the 1600's, in England there was an annual observance called "Mothering Sunday". It was celebrated during June, on the fourth sunday. On Mothering Sunday, the servants, who generally lived with their employers, were encouraged to return home and honor their mothers. It was traditional for them to bring a special cake along to celebrate the occasion.
In the U.S., in 1907, Ana Jarvis, from Philadelphia, began a campaign to establish a national mother's day. Jarvis persuaded her mother's church in Grafton, West Virginia to celebrate mother's day on the second anniversary of her mother's death, which was the second sunday in May. The next year mother's day was again celebrated in Philadelphia. Jarvis and others began a letter-writing campaign to ministers, businessmen, and politicians in their quest to establish a national mother's day. They were successful. In 1914, the American president proclaimed mother's day a national observance that was to be held each year on the second sunday of May.

I want to say to her that I love her very much. But as a boy， it is a bit difficult for me to show my heart. I think only girls can do that.My mother is very kind. She takes care of me day and night.She spends little money，but buys anything for me that I need.This time I must show my love. I am going to give her a card and write like this，"I love you， mother!" I am going to put it under her pillow.
