This is a photograph of a beautiful Magnolia tree that we were lucky enough to acquire when we bought our house.
I don’t know exactly how old it is, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it was older than I am.
I turned 40 last November.
We are custodians of beautiful trees so that they can give the next generations as much pleasure as they have given us. Our ancestors planted them and cared for them so that we too could take pleasure in them.
Often trees are planted by people with true vision who know they won’t actually benefit themselves but are making life better for the future.
So this is more than a beautiful magnolia tree.
It is a symbol of beauty.
A symbol that we must pass on.
