The chestnut tree in the courtyard: tall, hard, proud; the birch tree with long swinging arms, the weeping willow, and the tree with a trunk black as coal – these are some of the trees in Anna Fiske’s life. And then there are all the pine trees: in the childhood garden, by the sea where they are shaped by salty breeze, in the mountains, in the garden in the new country – it’s important to always have a pine tree in one’s life.
In this picture book for adult readers’ enchanting interaction between memories in drawings and in poetical texts, Anna Fiske has created her own genre.
