Quote on the back:
“The most beautiful people I have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths.
These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern.
Beautiful people do not just happen.”
Elisabeth Kübler-Ross

This vibrant flower is often the first to bloom after a forest fire. It is a pioneer species that begins the long chain of events leading to the restoration of a biodiverse ecosystem.
It’s one of my favourite flowers because it gives hope for recovery and for the beauty that can grow out of difficulty.
This card is created as a bouquet of empathy for those who have suffered loss from wildfires and other devastating events. May you find comfort in your loss and courage and help for your next step.
