Happy Mother’s Day

Statue of Victoria against a robins egg blue sky

This statue is in Victoria Park, Kitchener. I like the inscription on the plinth:

VICTORIA, QUEEN, EMPRESS A MODEL WIFE and MOTHER BELOVED, ADMIRED, REVERED SHE SHALL LIVE IN THE HEARTS OF HER PEOPLE

VICTORIA, QUEEN, EMPRESS
A MODEL WIFE and MOTHER
BELOVED, ADMIRED, REVERED
SHE SHALL LIVE IN THE
HEARTS OF HER PEOPLE

Red tulips planted in front of the statue, pink tulips behind

For Mother’s Day this year, you’ll find the legendary mother surrounded by tulips.



[You can find more photos of both the statue and the park on my Visual Laurel Tumblr blog.]
