a scene in the forest
reminds me of Christmas

As a child, the forest ferns reminded me of a perfect Christmas tree.
Every school year I create Christmas cards with my pupils.
One year I had an idea of using the ferns for these cards.
Since then, while still green and fresh in the woods, in the summertime, I pick the fern leaves and press them in books.
When dry and straight I use them as the base on a Christmas card, to be decorated in a number of different ways.
Everytime I see a fern in the woods, it reminds me of Christmas time.
