The poplar has always held a very special meaning for me, a connection to nature and to something greater that lies beyond the visible world.

What does the poplar tree look like?

A truly majestic tree, the poplar tree rises to the sky with a graceful elegance. Its slender trunks tell of countless annual rings that reveal its history and growth. Look at its bark, which presents itself in various shades of grey and brown, and gently stroke its surface to feel the fine details. The bark feels smooth, but if you look closely, you can see small cracks and bumps - signs of a long life that has not been free of challenges.

The poplar's branches reach for the sky, forming a dense tangle of branches that spread out like a shield from the bright sunlight. In summer, their bright green leaves decorate the treetops and dance in the slightest breeze. Their shape resembles the hearts hidden between the branches, and their gentle movements are reminiscent of the dance of the leaves in the sunlight.
