“Everything inside the frame is equally important”

~ Pentti Sammallahti


Long before the advent of Christianity, plants and trees that remained green all year had a special meaning for people in the winter. In many countries it was believed that evergreens would keep away witches, ghosts, evil spirits, and illness. To repel these unwanted guests ancient peoples hung evergreen boughs over their doors and windows.

Today, whether you appreciate evergreens in your home or out in nature, they bring a beautiful and stoic presence to their surroundings.
