#33 tree of hope

033/365 tree of hope, originally uploaded by rosipaw.

Last October I attended an Asia-Europe Classroom conference in Denmark. A dear Danish friend of mine had made dozens of lovely paper cuttings and let us choose one from her collection. The moment I saw this beautiful blooming tree I knew it was perfect for me.

I hung it on our bedroom window when winter set in. It is now the first thing I see every morning. It restores my hope in spring and rebirth during these months when colours are so scarce outside.

I have been planning to get curtains with a green forest or bright, colourful flower pattern on them for the winter, but haven’t got round to it yet. Thank you, Helene, for giving me this decoration – I’m also thinking of you every winter morning.

PS. The whole paper tree is actually green, but the light behind it made it into a black silhouette. Unfortunately, I have no idea how to correct it. So much to learn about photography!
