Flowers have always been the quintessential gift for Mother’s Day – celebrated this Sunday, May 10 – as they represent life and love. This year, you can send your mother and mother figures a free virtual bouquet of flowers, with help from India’sMuseum of Art and Photography (MAP) and its “Bouquet of Hope.”
More than 1,000 flowers have been submitted from around the world — including from artists Michele Oka Doner, Ralph Gibson, Jay Levenson,, Zandra Rhodes, Fern Mallis, Daisy Soros and Colin B. Bailey. Some were drawn or painted, others photographed or made from fabric. (We especially got a kick out of the bouquet with toilet paper petals, so of the moment.) MAP is creating the world’s largest flower bouquet to inspire hope; something we all need now more than ever.
Pick one of these lovelies or submit a flower of your own and build a bouquet around it.
Flowers can be sent from and submitted to bouquetofhope.in.
However you choose to celebrate, Happy Mother’s Day.
