“I didn’t know how to start with the roots, I knew the crown, so I started there. It includes my children, my husband, my family, dear friends, the things I like to do and enjoy…”

And the roots, that has become the crown with the blue sky. The branches are still bare there, but that’s because it’s winter now. It will start to grow leaves again in the spring.”
