Hey, isn’t that … “Hardball” host Chris Matthews showing his softer side by picking up a bouquet of flowers Saturday?

Our tipster saw the MSNBC talker scooping up some blooms at Allan Woods florist in Woodley Park, just a day ahead of Mother’s Day. Perhaps he’s just trying to keep up with his colleague, “Meet the Press” host David Gregory, who a tipster spotted the day before on a Mother’s Day shopping mission at a downtown jewelry store.
