My letter B is for “Boom van het jaar” which means Tree of the Year. This Tilia platyphyllos won the Dutch election for tree of the year in 2020 and came six in the European election. Its branches are very heavy and have to be supported by an iron frame. Its name is the “Moeierboom” meaning Mothertree and it is still giving new shoots that are cultivated and planted elsewhere. Nowadays a treesurgeon is monitoring the tree and its maintenance. Only a couple of weeks ago a drunken motorist crashed into the frame but the tree wasn’t harmed but the frame had to be mended.

The same fonts, another template and the background is a photo of the tree with a blend mode (Luminance) and a little blur.
