There are always flowers for those that want to see them.
~ Henry Matisse
Magnolias are a very special flower. I am captivated by their bare branches in winter, then at the first hint of warmth in spring, they come alive with velvet covered buds that bloom into scented glories.
My mother’s original sketches feature in many dog&boy designs, and this is one of them. She was the epitome of the simple beauty of everyday.
It’s easy to walk on by each day and not see the simple things. So stop, take a moment, and appreciate and be grateful for the simple beauty around you every day.
