Photographer's Note

This year Mothers' day in France is on 7th June. Normally, it occurs on the last Sunday in May, unless Whit Sunday (Pentecost) occurs on the same day. It was the case this year, so they delayed it until the first Sunday in June! If you go on the site of "Mothers'day" Wikipedia, you will see that each country has different dates for their Mothers' days, but most celebrate it on the second Sunday in May...

I chose this photo which I thought , represents well a mother's tender care for her child.

Also, we are getting into the local festival season, and this is a picture taken last year at the stawberry-festival of Plougastel. It shows a little BOY just about ready to start walking! Until the 1920's at least, BOYS WOULD WEAR DRESSES for the sake of changing their nappies (or diapers!) It was only around the age of 3 that they would start wearing trousers!
The little children's costumes in Plougastel were always blue! The difference with girls is that boys
would wear a hat instead of a bonnet!
