Sons and daughters treated their mums to a Mother’s Day with a difference when they headed to Gressenhall Farm and Workhouse.
More than 800 visitors attended the special flowers and chocolates themed event at the museum, near Dereham, today.
During the day, families could discover the Victorian “language of flowers” and the unique meaning of each flower, see a botanical art exhibition by Isobel Bartholomew, along with flower arrangements by Amity Flowers.
There was a chance to taste homemade truffles, make a trinket box and posy for mums and see the newborn lambs and new mums in the farm.
All mums were also treated to a free cream tea at the Mardlers’ Rest Café.
Organiser Miriam Burroughs said everyone had looked “extremely happy”.
Gina Ludkin, duty manager, added: “It’s been really successful. We’ve had a very good amount of visitors out on site and there have been lots of families sitting outside, having picnics and eating ice creams. It’s gone really, really well.”
