"All who joy would win, must share it

Happiness was born a twin" Lord Byron


Each year at this time I am reminded of the beautiful branch of Magnolia that my parents brought to me on the wonderfully exciting morning of Lucy and Emma's birth.

The lovely old Magnolia tree at our family home was the only thing flowering in the middle of winter and dear Mum knew how I would rather have something from her garden than a bought bunch from a florist.

Apologies to all florists!

We have had Magnolias for their August birthdays ever since.

So for my far away girls,

your very own birthday Magnolias.....

with all my love xx

Welcome the wonderful world of blogging. I read W&W every day...and am eargly awaiting images of the flat redo.
Now we know the source of inspiration, but we should have guessed for that's what mothers are show the way.
I love the Magnolia story...thankyou for sharing it; ah traditons, such joy.
May I come visit again?
