Peonies for Mum

With the tragic loss of lives, loved ones and homes burning through our nation, the feelings of despair and distress for those that have lost everything surface and we are reminded that the beauty of existence can not be taken for granted.

After flicking through this issue in a newsagency a few months ago, I told my mum about the woman who had always dreamt of growing peonies and how in retirement her dream had bloomed into reality. Mum said she'd love to read her story and I've been wishing I'd bought it for her ever since - so imagine my joy in finding it here.
