Introducing my Magnolia Stellata.
Now, here’s the reality.
Okay, so there’s only one flower so far this year! I planted this tree in September 2015. We lived in Holland for a while and I loved the Magnolia trees there so much I had to plant one when I started working on my new garden.
Taking a photo of this one flower and putting it up on this blog brought me to thinking about the saying, ‘Never judge a book by its cover.’
In fact I love sayings, especially ones like ‘What’s for you won’t pass you by’ and ‘Look after the pennies and the pounds will look after themselves.’
There’s something about the sheer common sense of them. There’s a comfort in knowing they’ve been passed down the years, a thread, a link with our past that we can give to the future.
Do you remember the people who said them to you?
These sayings are timeless, just like flowers. Little gifts to share and pass on to our future generations.
