This theme is still reflected in my work, especially the poppy and the oak tree. These two got my fascination from reading the poem by John McCrea. After a study trip through the Flanders Fields I also came to Delville Wood. There was ONE TREE that had survived the war. So in all various ways I am still working on the theme.
