Magnolia Bloom

Every year for mothers day, my children have given me plants. This is 2002, the magnolia tree which moved with us here. Every time it blooms I am reminded of the blossoms in my life. my children. These flowers fade after a few weeks bathing in the sun, but their memory lasts a lot longer. When I am old and wearing purple, I will sit in the garden and gaze at the magnolia tree and enjoy the blooms......
Such is the power of plants. My Dh never buys me flowers in bunches, but I have been given many plants that grow and flower each year. I feel blessed that way all through the seasons.
