Questions flitter around Mother's Day, like so many springtime butterflies, but one of the main ones among many people seems to be this: Where to go this year on Mom's big day?
You don't always want to repeat the brunch restaurant from last year -- and your mom might comment on your lack of adventure -- but you don't want to merely just visit her place for a quick cup of tea and call it a day. You want something bigger, something different, something with splash and/or dash.
Facebook maybe can assist you in that quest, or at least answer a few questions as to what SoCalers do on the day for all mothers.

It's interesting to know where people go, and, moreover, the places they want to share with friends and family. Wherever you and mommy head out for, may it be a blooming garden of a day, whether you happen to visit a blooming garden or not.
