The sweet pink cover has the silhouette of a magnolia tree. Open the card to a southern magnolia tree in full bloom. Its pink flowers are gigantic, gorgeous, fragrant, soft and subtle. A few blossoms have fallen on the ground around the tree.
The magnolia tree is associated with the South. A steel-magnolia is a Southern woman who exemplifies both traditional femininity as well as uncommon fortitude. She is a woman who possesses the strength of steel, yet the gentleness of a magnolia. She is independent but very feminine.
This card is perfect for an strong, gracious, feminine woman, especially a Southern woman.
A thing of beauty is a joy forever.
Bloom where you are planted.
Start each day with a grateful heart.
It’s here and it’s gone on a magnolia wind.
You make the old magnolia tree blossom at the mention of your name. ~Eddie Fisher, in Mame
