As it was Mother’s Day in the UK, Algy’s assistant had asked him whether he would kindly take her mother a special balloon. Algy was very willing to help, but when he tried to set off he discovered that although balloons filled with helium do “float” in the air, they most certainly don’t fly in the same way that fluffy birds do…

Algy had gathered some flowers and made a very special bunch of balloons to give to Jenny’s mother on Mother’s Day, but the journey to deliver them was such a long one, and the mossy grass beside the loch looked so nice and soft …

Algy hopes that mothers everywhere will have a very happy day today 🙂

[In the UK and Ireland, Mother’s Day is celebrated on Mothering Sunday, a moveable feast which falls on the 4th Sunday in Lent.]
