May this dress celebrate a passion for flowers!! flowers and magnolias, especially magnolias!!!

He who is born with a silver spoon in his mouth is generally considered a fortunate person, but his good fortune is small compared to that of the happy mortal who enters this world with a passion for flowers in his soul.Celia Thaxter

Here in New England the spring has been a long time coming!!! In fact I still have my parka and boots by the door as it hailed on Sunday.  It was also a long winter, physically and emotionally.  In fact I was informed that we were in a polar vortex!! 
So as Mother Nature has taken mercy on us here and the world has started to EXPLODE!! I have been taking forever walks (with my faithful pup, Scruffy, taking pictures of this amazing performance and here are some of my pictures. 
I have been particularly taken by the luscious and gorgeous Magnolia and so as this amazing flowers fall to the ground I felt it was only appropriate to honor these beauties with a dress.  And even in death and decay I think these petals are spectacular!! I'm smitten!! :)

Each flower is a soul 
opening out to nature.

Where flowers bloom so does hope.
