All around our neighbourhood the Magnolias are flowering bright and proud in beautiful hues of pink and white.
Because of the Magnolias' sweet, creamy and light floral scent, the magnolia has been used in perfumery for centuries. It was named after French botanist Pierre Magnol.
Considered a classic floral fragrance, the scent of magnolia has notes of a sweet floral punch like a rose, but with a citrusy lemon edge and a slightly earthy, musk undertone.
We thought this was such a great idea to bring a bit of nature into the concrete jungle. Beautiful artistry.
These beautiful lilies are flowering in all their glory in gardens at the moment.
As we near Easter the symbolism of the Passion Flower brings us reminders of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. The colours of the Passion Flower are generally blue and white which are said to represent the heavens and purity. The three stigmas are said to represent the three nails that were used on Christ's hands and feet to affix him to the cross. The five anthers are associated with the five wounds of Christ and the hundreds of filaments are said to represent the crown of thorns.
