A Grove of trees in the Scottish Highlands

A grove of trees in the Scottish Highlands

We married on the first day of the Iranian solar year,
the first day of spring, known as the "New Day",
celebrated across West and Central Asia.
"Your every day a new day", begins a common New Year's greeting.
Why celebrate only wedding anniversaries?
Every day a new day,
every day our wedding anniversary,
every day a day of growth and renewal
for the forest as for love and life.


Add trees to this grove

Remembering Sama.

Once again the spring equinox is upon us. The bleak glories of winter give way to the green blaze of new growth, as they have done since time immemorial.

The cold comes, the cold goes, the snowdrops grow. Light gathers: it is winter, but spring is not impossible. From the recesses of the darkness comes once again new growth.

Add trees to this grove

 
Your grove of trees

The trees in this grove will be carefully planted in protected sites in the Scottish Highlands where they will create homes for wildlife and forests for the future.
