Given it’s Easter I thought I would capture a tradition that has been part of my life since I was born. The photo is a close up of our Easter Tree. I grew up in Germany and for our Easter decorations our Dad would take us out for a walk and gather Forsythia and then at home we would blow out raw eggs, decorate them and hang them on the branches of the fresh Forsythia. Every year we would do this and when our daughter was born we continued, until we moved to Canada. I suddenly realized that Forsythia is nowhere to be seen in our part of Alberta at this time of year. So , after our second year without our Easter Tree I decided to buy the fake variety to continue our tradition.
