Michael michaud designs from nature
I did some further research and learned that the Ash tree was very important in Viking mythology being the "tree of life". In Ireland, it is the second most popular tree to be beside holy wells. In British folklore, it was seen to offer special protection for babies and children. In many parts of England, children would bring a branch of the ash tree to school on Ash Wednesday.
Seems like a beautiful accessory to wear on Easter.
Blessings from Art Connections Gallery on this most Holy Day.
