The Joy of Nature

Inspired by a friend visiting from Belgium,

Joy Magwood began growing lavender on her Puslinch farm. Today, over 500 plants are the inspiration for her floral design work that spurs her to live artistically, bringing the beauty of nature to everyday life. Through Torry Lane Mille de Fleurs, Joy designs with sensitivity and appreciation for the beauty of God’s creation.
