national arbor day / Tag des Baumes

This sketch is about 9 month old and it shows my favorite tree. I knew this tree since childhood, it was more that 150 years old (which I am not).

The idea behind this strange combination was inspired by friends. She loves dragons and he is very interested in submarines 🙂 Es gibt also einen Tag des U-Bootes. Dabei würde… submarine day #doodlewashaday weiterlesen
